The airline said the incident has been resolved and all systems are working normally.

Hackers obtained the credit card details of some 380,000 British Airways travelers during a two-week data breach this summer that leaves the customers vulnerable to financial fraud, the airline says.

Finally, Cruz stated, "At the moment, our number one objective is contacting those customers that made those transactions to make sure they contact their credit card bank providers so they can follow their instructions on how to manage that breach of data".

"We are deeply sorry for the disruption that this criminal activity has caused", the airline said.

Air Canada has said credit card data was encrypted and protected from a breach but Aeroplan numbers, passport numbers, birth dates, nationalities and countries of residence could have been accessed if users saved them in their account profile.

Cruz said anyone who lost out financially would be compensated by the airline. It had notified police and relevant authorities.

Hurricane Isaac is now located 1,305 miles west of the Windward Islands with sustained wind speeds of 75 mph. On the forecast track, Olivia will be approaching the main Hawaiian Islands later Tuesday and Tuesday night.

In the U.S., Delta Airlines said in April that payment-card information for several hundred thousand customers could have been exposed by a malware breach months earlier.

Cruz told the BBC's "Today" programme that the data breach was a "sophisticated, malicious criminal attack".

"I´ve not heard anything from them on this and I´ve just had to cancel the card I used". It is now vital that the company moves quickly to ensure those affected get clear information about what has happened and what steps they should take to protect themselves.

Customers' banking information was compromised, but no travel information.

A spokesman for the ICO said it would be "making inquiries" into the British Airways hack.

Some 75,000 passengers were left stranded after a glitch forced the airline to cancel almost 726 flights over three days. The airline said affected customers should follow their bank or provider's recommended advice.
