(Reuters) -American Airlines Inc said on Tuesday that hackers gained access to personal information of a small number of customers and employees through a phishing campaign.
The airline said it had no evidence that any personal data was misused.
Shares of the company pared gains to trade down 1%.
“American Airlines (NASDAQ:) is aware of a phishing campaign that led to the unauthorized access to a limited number of team member mailboxes,” the carrier said in a statement.
The airline added it was implementing additional technical safeguards to prevent similar incidents, without giving further details.
