A separate Police Security Service (PST) unit will monitor everyone who travels in and out of Norway by plane in order to detect terrorists or serious crime, according to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

According to the news channel, the unit is a result of cooperation between the Police Security Service (PST), Kripos, and the Customs.

Those working in the group will collect, store, and analyze information from air passenger data, but also exchange information and analysis results with other countries and Europol.

The government will make these processes legal.

The plan is for the unit to be operational in Kripos’ premises from January 1, 2022, and in full operation from July 1.

The PST has previously been criticized for monitoring passenger lists without having the authority to do so.
