Worldwide airport disruptions after check-in systems go down

Closed
by September 28, 2017 General

A worldwide outage to passenger processing systems has left flights on the tarmac and passengers unable to check in.

Passengers at Sydney, London Gatwick, Charles de Gaulle in Paris, Reagan Airport in Washington DC, Changi Airport in Singapore, Johannesburg and Zurich airports have all reportedly had problems.

A Qantas spokesperson confirmed that there had been a systems outage but said that flights were continuing to depart from Sydney Airport.

UK newspaper The Telegraph are reporting that the problem has only affected Amadeus Altea software, a booking and check-in system used by multiple airlines.

Sydney Airport was thrown into chaos earlier this week after a software fault caused flight delays and cancellations around Australia on Monday.
