Chaos at airports worldwide as check-in systems crash

More than 100 airports around the world, including London’s Heathrow and Gatwick, Charles de Gaulle in Paris, Changi in Singapore and Washington DC’s Reagan, suffered major disruption on Thursday after their computer check-in systems crashed.

The outage was reported when a programme, known as Altea and developed by a company called Amadeus, encountered problems. However, the issue was soon resolved. The company called it a ‘network issue’ and said in a statement.

As the software is used by the airlines and not by airports, the problem spread fast across the world. Facing chaos and delays, many passengers took to social media to complain and tweeted pictures of the long lines at airports.
