DSC_0339 (1)British Airways reported that customer data from the servers that operate its website and app were stolen over a two-week period.

The Harmondsworth-based airline said that approximately 380,000 credit card numbers had been compromised in the period from late August to early September. Customer passport data or travel details were not taken.

“From 22.58 BST August 21 2018 until 21.45 BST September 5 2018 inclusive, the personal and financial details of customers making bookings on and the airline’s app were compromised,” the company said in a statement. “The stolen data did not include travel or passport details.”

The airline took action once it became aware of the breach.

“The breach has been resolved and our website is working normally,” it said.

British Airways said that customers who conducted transactions during that period should notify their credit card providers.
