Passengers traveling to Canada

As of April 11, 2006, Canadian authorities have asked airlines operating flights to Canada to provide the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) with electronic access to passenger data, for security and protection purposes. Airlines not complying with this request may face heavy fines and even loss of landing rights, as well as seeing their passengers subject to accurate and prolonged controls in the Canadian airports, with all possible consequent inconveniences. 

Like all European carriers flying to Canada, Alitalia intends to comply with these requirements. 
The transfer of passenger data to the Canadian authorities is, infact, a prerequisite for operating transport services to Canada. 

If a passenger disagrees with the disclosure of this data, such disagreement can only be made effective by not travelling to Canada. The above is according to the Council of the European Union Decision 2006/230/EC of 18 July 2005, that has approved the Agreement between the European Community and the Government of Canada "on the processing of Advance Passenger Information and Passenger Name Record data". 
Taking into account the specific undertakings assumed by the Government of Canada, regarding the level of protection granted by CBSA to PNR personal data transferred from the European Community, the European Commission with Decision 2006/253/EC of 6 September 2005, has stated that the CBSA itself complies with the law personal data protection requirements provided by the European Directive 95/46/EC of 24 October 1995 for data transfer to a third country such as the Canada.
