Recently, there has been a stir due to the breach in the data of the Indian airline Akasa Air. A case of access to the data of the company’s customers to some unauthorized people has come to the fore. Akasa Air, the company that started airline services on 7th of this month, has apologized to its customers for this mess. Akasa Air was started by famous businessman Rakesh Jhunjhunwala but he died after a week.
After the theft of data, Akasa Air itself has informed the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) about the matter. According to information posted on the company’s website, on August 25, some temporary technical glitches were reported regarding login and sign-up services. “As a result, information such as name, gender, e-mail address and phone number of registered users of Akasa Air became available to certain unauthorized persons,” the airline said.
The airline has clarified that apart from this information, no other information related to travel or information about travel records and payment has been disclosed. Akasa Air also said that the protection of customer information is of paramount importance to it. In its apology letter, Akasa Air has said that ‘we are sorry if any inconvenience has been caused to the customers due to this.’
Akasa Air is the first airline to start operations in the last decade. Its first flight was operated on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad route on 7 August. Billionaire investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala was a major investor in this airline. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala passed away a week after the commencement of operations.
