EasyJet faces UK's biggest ever class action lawsuit

EasyJet is facing a legal claim brought by thousands of its customers following a data breach involving the personal details of about 9 million passengers.

The budget airline announced the breach in May, some months after notifying the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office.

Law firm, PGMBM is leading the case against the airline. Managing partner, Tom Goodhead, said: “This is a monumental data breach and a monumental failure that has a serious impact on EasyJet’s customers. This is personal information that we trust companies with, and customers should rightly expect that every effort is made to protect that. Unfortunately, EasyJet has spilled the sensitive personal information of nine million customers from all corners of the world.”

The international law firm is currently also leading a class action against British Airways following its 2018 data breach.
