Statement on Privacy International report

Privacy International alerted Skyscanner to an issue with the transmission of data via the Facebook SDK (software development kit) on Android apps. The SDK primarily allows us to serve users relevant ads. Skyscanner always seeks to be transparent with our users about any data we collect and the trust of our users when it comes to their privacy is our top priority. Since being alerted to this issue, we released an update to our Android app as a priority which will stop the transmission of data via the Facebook SDK. As a further result of this we will audit all our consent tracking and are committed to making any changes necessary to ensure that travellers privacy rights are fully respected.
