You could be entitled to claim compensation from easyJet for the breach of your personal data.
To join the claim, all you need is a notification email from easyJet informing you of the breach, which was sent between April and July 2020.
easyJet announced on
19 May 2020 that the personal data of 9 million customers had been exposed in a data breach.
Customers were informed that anyone who booked easyJet flights or holidays between
17 October 2019 and 4 March 2020 may have been affected.
Despite notifying the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office of the breach in January 2020, the airline chose to wait four months to notify its customers.
The personal data breached includes:
The exposure of individuals’ personal travel patterns may pose security risks to individuals and is a gross invasion of privacy.
easyJet also revealed that approximately 2,200 passengers had their credit card data stolen, including expiry dates and CVV numbers.
Following the discovery of the data breach in January 2020, easyJet waited four months to inform their customers that their data had been breached.
In their notification email, easyJet simply told customers to continue “to be alert as you would normally be, especially with any unsolicited communications.“
Customers whose financial details were stolen by potential cyber criminals were offered a free 12-month membership to a credit checking service to help them to monitor any suspicious use of their identity.
More than 9 million people were affected by the easyJet breach and PGMBM is already representing thousands of them.

This means those affected are entitled to compensation for any stress, frustration, and anxiety they experienced because of the easyJet data breach.
If you received the data breach notification email from easyJet, whether you experienced any direct consequences or not, you have the right to seek compensation for the loss of control of your data and the serious risks associated with it.
