The server at Mumbai airport's Terminal 2, which crashed earlier this evening, is working now. The airport in a statement said a severed cable affected the network. This was the result of ongoing work elsewhere in the city, the airport said. Earlier, massive crowds of passengers were seen waiting to check in. Many tweeted photos of the chaotic scenes at the airport.
Here are Mumbai airport server down updates:
Many passengers at Mumbai airport tweeted they are unable to check-in. Airport officials said they are working on manual check-in, which takes a considerable amount of time compared to the computerised system.
"Our passengers are requested to allocate additional time for check-in and also to kindly connect with their respective airlines, owing to a temporary network interruption outside the airport due to ongoing development in the city. Our teams are present on ground and manual processing has been initiated to facilitate all passengers. We sincerely regret the inconvenience and thank our passengers for their understanding," Mumbai International Airport Ltd, or MIAL, said in a statement.
"Due to the server down at Mumbai International Airport, the crowd is slightly more than normal. The crowd is being managed well and there is no chaos as manual passes are being issued," the Central Industrial Security Force, or CISF, said.
There is a way to issue manual passes and operate the check-in process in manual mode. This, however, takes much longer.
