Deal lets U.S. get EU airlines traveler data

8 October 2006

The United States and the European Union worked out a tentative deal Friday that will allow anti-terrorist officials in the United States to collect personal data on travelers flying to the United States from Europe while simultaneously ensuring the data-sharing would not violate EU rules on privacy.

The new deal succeeds a 2004 pact that was overturned by an EU court in May and was agreed to after a nine-hour videoconference Thursday. Both the U.S. and EU governments need to formally approve the deal, expected to occur as early as next week.
