The British airline British Airways may receive a fine of almost 205 million euros due to an earlier data breach. As a result, financial data from possibly hundreds of thousands of customers was captured last year.

The fine that the British privacy authority wants to impose ICO amounts to 1.5 percent of British Airways revenues in 2017, parent company IAG reported in a statement. British Airways regards the intended financial penalty as disappointing. The company said, when the crack came to light, it did everything it could to inform customers and authorities.

IAG boss Willie Walsh says the airline will take every possible step to protect the interests of British Airways. Where necessary, the company will also challenge the fine.
