Virgin Blue Group announces airport check-in systems back online

Virgin Blue Group announced (27-Sep-2010) its airport check-in and boarding systems are now back online and will be operating as normal from 27-Sep-2010. Group Executive, Corporate Communications, Danielle Keighery, stated the carrier is hoping for minimal delays. The group’s check-in and reservation system crashed just after 08:00 on 26-Sep-2010, due to a hardware failure (AAP/Sydney Morning Herald, 27-Sep-2010) The carrier was forced to operate manual systems instead. Approximately 20% of flights were cancelled over the day. Jetstar’s check-in systems also broke down twice over the day, each for approximately 15 minutes, but no services were affected. more]
