"In order for law enforcement agencies to effectively tackle the growing and evolving threat posed to European citizens, in particular from foreign fighters, it is necessary that they have a robust legal framework to access passenger data on intra-EEA routes."

See the full-text: Meeting Document: From: UK delegation To: JHA Counsellors/COSI Support Group: Subject: Legal framework for intra-EEA API - Discussion document (This is a LIMITE and a "DS" document - which means it is not referenced on the Council's public register, pdf)

The UK also proposed that flights within the EU should be included in the EU PNR scheme: See: EU-PNR SCHEME: UK seeking to extend Commission proposal to cover intra-EU flights from the start (Statewatch database)
