First instance of jamming for a commercial transatlantic flight

June 2024: A flight from Madrid to Toronto was the victim of a GPS Jamming attack over the Atlantic. The attack prevented the pilot from ascending to a higher altitude. The source has yet to be identified. The RNL’s Dr. Humphreys said the incident was a “more deliberate attack against commercial aircraft” rather than “the usual spillover of electronic warfare”. He also weighed in saying “it could be individual hackers who have learned from media reports how vulnerable commercial aircraft are to GPS jamming… It’s hard to see why a state actor would do this, though I don’t deny that Russia’s penchant for hybrid warfare that involves creating whatever mayhem it can in the West.” For more, visit the original article here.
