What is PNR?

PNR is also known as Passenger name record.

According to Wikipedia, in the airline and travel industries, a passenger name record (PNR) is a record in the database of a computer reservation system (CRS) that contains the itinerary for a passenger, or a group of passengers travelling together.

There are five different parts associated with the PNR:

  • Names of passenger, whose ticket is reserved.
  • Contact details of the booking passenger / travel agent.
  • Itinerary of one passengers.
  • Names and ID numbers of the people travelling.
  • Ticket number and other details.

  • ID proof number of at least one of the passengers.
