The Best Way to Deal With an Airline Data Breach

To get on a plane, we all need to give a substantial amount of personal data to the airlines. This includes a person’s name, phone number, ID, and passport information. Also, the home address, email, credit card details, in addition to the destination, and probably other work details. 

Imagine the kind of damage that could befall a person if this data falls in the wrong hands? Hackers target large organisations, like airlines, as the clients’ data records are the proverbial goldmine for their ill intentions. 

It’s only fair then to penalise such acts should an airline fail to protect their customer data. Even the inconvenience of having personal data mishandled should have consequences. 

Airline data breaches happen. So, if you believe that your data was compromised through such unfortunate events, you can demand financial compensation.

What Is an Airline Data Breach?

An airline or any other facility that routinely gathers user information has a legal and ethical obligation to protect this data. A data breach occurs when: 

  • Hackers manage to infiltrate the system 
  • The data is lost due to poor storage and backing up systems
  • The data is stolen through malware
  • Information is held longer than necessary
  • The data is used for purposes other than the stated 
  • Personal information is disclosed/sold/made public
  • Data is used in identity theft or financial fraud

Previous Airline Data Breaches and How They Were Resolved 

Here are some of the significant data breaches that the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) investigated and settled. You’d notice that the past few years had the highest frequency of such incidents. 

Cathay Pacific Airline Data Breach 2018 

In this incident, the personal details of 9.4 million clients were wrongfully accessed by hackers. Cathay Pacific was fined £500,000 as the ICO found them hugely negligent in safeguarding this data. 

The airline admitted their shortcomings, including the unjustified six-months delay to inform the affected parties. As it turned out, they had numerous loopholes in their IT system, and it wasn’t difficult at all to steel all this data. 

The British Airways Data Breach 2018

This is one of the biggest events that took place recently, where the personal and financial details of half a million users were compromised. British Airways had to pay £138,000,00 as compensation, which is one of the highest fines we’ve come across. 

The magnanimity of the monetary fine comes from the fact that the breach was entirely avoidable. It was the result of a poorly maintained and monitored IT system. Furthermore, this vulnerability is expected to be present elsewhere in the system.   

EasyJet Data Breach 2020

This is another case where the personal data of nine million clients were subjected to a cyber attack. The EasyJet breach was detected in January, yet the airline failed to notify the authorities or affected users until April. 

This delay in addition to the vast amount of damage caused by the breach amounts to a major case. The group legal claim is expected to cost EasyJet billions of pounds.

Frequently asked questions & Useful InfoQuestions we are frequently asked by our users

How To Make a Claim if Your Travel Data Was Compromised?

According to the terms of General Data Protection Regulation, a person is entitled to financial compensation for any of the following impacts of a data breach: 

  • Inconvenience
  • Distress
  • Annoyance 
  • Loss of control over personal data

The best way to go about claiming is to contact solicitors who have previous experience in handling such cases. The amount of the claim is assessed depending on the severity of the data breach and damages incurred.

The airline could be forced to pay more if the failure to protect users’ data was preventable. Also, if they aren’t prompt in disclosing the breach to the affected users.  

Usually, these matters are settled out of the courts. However, they could just as well be pursued legally, and even escalated into a class-action case.
