Warsaw low-cost terminal struck by computer failure
"Etiuda" terminal at Warsaw airport - which is serving budget airlines - was paralyzed by a server failure that lasted approximately 2 hours on Wednesday. All of departures have been delayed by at least 90 minutes. The proper terminal operations were restored later that afternoon.
The ground personnel had to check-in passengers manually, not being able to rely on a computer server based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Similar problems took place on six other European airports.
