MUMBAI: Chaos prevailed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMA) here after a computer system failure that hit check-ins and other operations for all airlines on Thursday, sources said.
Massive crowds of passengers were seen sitting or moving around in the Terminal 2 due to the systems glitch, the exact details of which are not yet clear.
However, officials said that the issue is being rectified and the systems are likely to be made operational soon, though no statement has been issued in this matter yet.

@RNTata2000 @airindiain @JM_Scindia No status on departure of AI 664 from Goa to Bom. We are here in the airport from 2.15 PM and no basic courtesy of water, tea or coffee being extended and no update on ETD. What's the difference Mr. Tata?— suresh (@surelaks) December 1, 2022
