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:

  • 89% of executing domains are from third-party vendors
  • 0% high-risk domains, on average, trending down in 1Q21
  • 5% month-over-month domain variability, trending up
  • 18 year cookie is the largest tracker; now it is only found on 1 site
  • 49 domains, on average, execute when consumers access the home page
  • JavaScript download size is increasing, 0.98MB
