The Australian airline Jetstar suffered from an extended system outage on Sunday. The outage brought the check-in system offline, forcing Jetstar to switch to manual check-ins which caused significant delays for its passengers all over Australia.
According to Sky News, the outage lasted for about two-and-a-half hours, though it would take overnight work to fully restore the system and have everything on schedule Monday morning.
Aside from the widespread delays, ten flights had to be cancelled completely due to the outage.
The outage was apparently caused by a power surge at the Telstra exchange, where Jetstar’s systems are hosted.
