Travelers at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport faced significant delays as a system outage halted check-in services at the counters during the evening.
The disruption was caused by an infrastructure malfunction that left many passengers unable to proceed through the usual check-in process.
In response to the crisis, airport authorities announced that self check-in kiosks and bag-drop services were still operational and could be used for completing check-in procedures. Meanwhile, efforts were underway to resolve the remaining issues as quickly as possible.
The technical team at the airport was actively working to fix the malfunction, but there was no immediate indication of when full service would be restored. The airport staff were on hand, providing guidance and support to affected passengers and managing the situation to minimize inconvenience.
This incident underscores the challenges faced by airports in maintaining seamless operations and the critical nature of backup systems to ensure continuity of service for travelers.
