In what seemed to be a significant outage, German airline Lufthansa reported Wednesday that IT issues were prompting it to cancel and delay flights across its several airlines.
Although the firm did not immediately state which airports were impacted, a large number of cancellations were visible on the departures board at its hub in Frankfurt.
An IT disruption is currently affecting the Lufthansa Group’s airlines, the firm said.
“This is resulting in flight cancellations and delays. We are sorry for the trouble this is giving our customers.
Europe’s largest airline group is Lufthansa. Additionally, it owns Austrian Airlines, Swiss, Eurowings, and Brussels.
A Lufthansa spokeswoman told AFP, “So far, we’re not sure if Lufthansa (group) is the only one affected.”
He added that the organization had put together a crisis team that was scrambling to ascertain the origin and scope of the outage.
The German daily Bild reported “chaos” during the boarding and check-in processes at the airports in Frankfurt and Munich.
