EasyJet Plc said email addresses and travel data of about 9 million customers were taken by hackers in one of the biggest data breaches to hit the airline industry.

The intruders also accessed credit card details for 2,208 customers in the “highly sophisticated” attack, EasyJet said Tuesday in a statement. The airline said it’s closed off the unauthorized access, notified those whose credit-card information was exposed and will contact the rest of the customers over the next few days.
