Airline Hit By Cyber Attack, Cancels Flights
After a cyber attack on its computer network, RavnAir was forced to cancel at least a half-dozen flights in Alaska Dec. 22, 2019.
While the airline itself is not a huge carrier, the cancellations affected around 260 passengers, said company spokeswoman Debbie Reinwand.
The regional carrier canceled all flights involving its Dash 8 aircraft until noon “because the cyber attack forced us to disconnect our Dash 8 maintenance system and its back-up,” the company said. The airline serves more than 100 communities in Alaska, many of which are not accessible by road.
