EasyJet 🛩

If the downturn for the travel sector wasn’t enough. EasyJet have now had a data breach.

The budget airline said 2,200 customers also had their credit card details accessed in the data breach

The ICO said last year that it intended to fine British Airways a record £183 million ($230m) after a data breach exposed the booking details of 500,000 customers.

Nine million travel records, which would potentially contain customer data, plus 2,200 credit card details compromised. The data fine for this could be the nail in the coffin.

Given they were the first airline to ask for a bailout in the UK, this isn’t good news.

EasyJet will be back in the skies from today.

A tricky time as they are only running a few flights and the overseas quarantine rules (self quarantine for 14 days with fines for non-compliance) make it unlikely anything other than essential travel will happen.
