Key Learnings:

As British Airlines, Air Canada and Cathay Pacific learned, falling prey to a website or mobile app security incident is a real risk. With more consumers making direct travel purchases online, the airline industry needs to better protect digital assets. Inability to identify and secure the code that renders on consumer devices is a serious problem. On average, the Airline sector experienced:

  • 90% of executing domains are from third-party vendors
  • 5% month-over-month domain variability, trending down since August
  • 60% domains, on average, execute when consumers access the home page
  • 1% high-risk domains, on average, with Airline 4 using the most risky domains
  • 68 year cookie is the largest tracker; it’s found on 2 sites
  • JavaScript download size is controlled, remaining at 0.67MB
