Alaskan based airline RavnAir has been forced to cancel a total of 19 flights since Saturday due to a “cyber-attack” on one of their systems. So far very few details have been released on exactly what took place during the attack. One of the few details being shared is that the system which was directly impacted by the attack was the “IT maintenance system” for their airline’s Dash 8 aircraft. The attack forced the airline to disconnect the maintenance system and its back-up, resulting in canceled flights for approximately 260 passengers. The airline does not currently know when operations will be returning to normal but have said that customers should expect the flights to be impacted for the next week.
