The flag carrier airline of the United Kingdom, British Airways is to be fined more than £189 million over a customer data breach.

The airline announced this morning that it had been notified by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office that it intends to hit British Airways with the fine because of the theft of people’s data from its website.

British Airways chairman Alex Cruz said the airline was "disappointed" by the initial finding.

He said: "British Airways responded quickly to a criminal act to steal customers’ data. We have found no evidence of fraud/fraudulent activity on accounts linked to the theft.

"We apologize to our customers for any inconvenience this event caused."

Willie Walsh, chief executive of BA’s owner International Airlines Group (IAG), said the airline would make "any necessary appeals" against the penalty, Metro UK reports.
