hacker attack on Easyjet - 9 million customers affected
© Shutterstock hacker attack on Easyjet - 9 million customers affected Not enough that Easyjet, like other airlines, was hit by the corona crisis, now the low-cost airline has to admit a hacker attack. Data from millions of users are affected, who was behind it was not known. With the low-cost airline Easyjet, unknown attackers have gained access to e-mail addresses and travel details from around nine million customers.
The British low-cost airline Easyjet wants to cut up to 30 percent of its jobs due to the corona crisis. The aircraft fleet is also expected to shrink instead of growing, as the company announced on Thursday in Luton near London. Management justified the cuts with the slump in air traffic as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the expectation that flight ticket demand will not return to 2019 levels by 2023.
Easyjet boss Johan Lundgren continues to be unable to make a financial forecast for the current financial year until the end of September. In the fourth business quarter, which includes the summer months that are important for airlines, the flight offer is expected to be 70 percent less than a year earlier.
Easyjet's aircraft fleet is expected to shrink to 302 aircraft by the end of the 2021 financial year. The airline recently had 337 aircraft in March and actually wanted to expand its fleet. Easyjet has reached an agreement with the aircraft manufacturer Airbus to only take further ordered aircraft later than planned. (dpa)
