Low-cost carrier IndiGo on Monday, November 4, said its systems were down across the network and that it expects operations at airports to be impacted as a result. "All efforts are being made to resolve the issue at the earliest," India's largest airline IndiGo said in a statement.
IndiGo, owned by Interglobe Aviation Ltd, is India's largest carrier with a nearly 50 per cent share of the domestic market. Travellers affected by the outage took to Twitter to raise concerns.
"Our systems are down across the network. We are expecting the counters to be crowded more than usual. Please bear with us as we try to solve the issue asap," the airline said in a statement.
"IndiGo says systems down and huge queues till outside the main entrance gates in Mumbai T2," one user with the handle @Sathyantweets tweeted, referring to Terminal 2 at Mumbai's airport. "Chaos. No one knows when it will be resolved."
IndiGo's outage comes as dozens of flights face delays or cancellations on Monday, according to reports, due to a decline in visibility because of hazardous air pollution shrouding Delhi. Around nine flights have been delayed in Mumbai.
