Flight Centre has been forced into crisis management after potentially commercially sensitive data was sent to the wrong companies because of a computer problem.
The problem affected Flight Centre’s corporate travel clients FCM Travel Solutions and was caused by a “scheduled system upgrade”, the Australian reported.
Flight Centre has contacted FCM to manage the situation and return it to normal.
A Flight Centre spokesperson said that the problem was only centred on the last 24 hours.
“Unfortunately this upgrade caused a temporary issue with our itinerary functionality late last night and early this morning,” the spokesperson said.
Flight Centre was recently fined AUD $11 million for price fixing.
