Luxair victim of cyberattack

On Saturday afternoon, the Luxembourg flight company Luxair experienced a cyberattack.

On its Facebook page, the travel and leisure group announced: “We are currently experiencing a cyberattack and therefore you may have difficulties getting in touch with us or maybe encounter delays during check-in. We are working on getting the systems to run normally again as soon as possible.”

Luckily, just two hours later, everything seemed to be under control.
