A global flight booking system is being blamed for security flaws that have seen paparazzi gain access to celebrity travel itineraries.

Paparazzi are reportedly gaining access to the private flight itineraries of celebrities, in what has been described as a security threat to airlines.

The Australian reports the Virgin Australia travel itineraries of Naomi Watts, Rebel Wilson and Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban have been accessed.

The itineraries are believed to have been sourced from global booking system Sabre, which is used by Virgin, though a competing system, Armadeus, used by Qantas, is also said to be vulnerable to being hacked.
