Airport Computer Check-in Systems Crash
Air passengers have been suffering major disruption at airports around the world after computer check-in systems crashed.
Problems were reported at airports including London’s Heathrow and Gatwick, Charles de Gaulle in Paris, Zurich, Melbourne, Johannesburg, Changi in Singapore and Washington DC’s Reagan Airport.
Travellers endured delays at check-in desks after the outage from about 10.30am on Thursday.
The problem affected Amadeus Altea software used by 125 airlines and appeared to also have hit some online check-ins.
Amadeus Altea software sounds like they are trying to minimize the situation a bit, but I’m sure that this was a frustration for many traveling today.
