IAG Warns Air Europa's Customers of Personal Data Leak, WSJ Reports

International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG), the parent company of British Airways, disclosed that personal data belonging to Air Europa's customers had been compromised in a security incident detected in October, as per a report by the Wall Street Journal on Thursday.

According to the report, IAG notified Air Europa's customer base via email about the data breach, revealing that sensitive information like identity cards, passport details, names, birthdates, phone numbers, and nationalities had been exposed. However, the company assured that there was no evidence of fraudulent activity using the compromised data.

Neither IAG nor Air Europa responded immediately to Reuters' requests for comments. Earlier in October, Madrid-based Air Europa experienced a cyber attack on its online payment system, resulting in the exposure of some customers' credit card details. The airline clarified that no additional information was compromised, although it didn't specify the exact number of affected customers.

In a significant business move, IAG had previously agreed to acquire the remaining 80% stake in Air Europa from Spain's Globalia for a hefty sum of 400 million euros ($434.48 million) last year. This acquisition aimed to strengthen IAG's foothold in the aviation market, consolidating its position as a leading player in the industry.
