Customers’ Credit Card details Stolen at Spanish Airline: Air Europa

November 14, 2023


Spanish airline Air Europa, the country's third-largest airline and a member of the SkyTeam alliance, warned customers on Monday 9 October to cancel their credit cards after attackers accessed their card information in a recent data breach. "We inform you that a cybersecurity incident was recently detected in one of our systems consisting of possible unauthorized access to your bank card data," Air Europa said in emails sent to affected individuals and seen by BleepingComputer.

The credit card details exposed in the breach include card numbers, expiration dates, and the 3-digit CVV (Card Verification Value) code on the back of the payment cards. Air Europa warned affected customers to ask their banks to cancel their cards used on the airline's website due to "the risk of card spoofing and fraud" and "to prevent possible fraudulent use."
