German Airport IT Systems Targeted in Cyber Attack

The websites of seven German airports were hit by a suspected cyber attack on Thursday, the ADV airport association said, a day after a major IT failure at Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) left thousands of passengers stranded.

Among the airports affected were Dusseldorf, Nuremberg and Dortmund, but websites for Germany’s biggest airports in Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin were operating normally.

It is believed that cyber-attacks have caused these problems. All airport operations are continuing as scheduled with no substantive disruptions were caused by the website outages. These outages have primarily served as a nuisance for the airports. However, if these outages continue, they could begin to disrupt select airport operations which could start a domino effect throughout the remaining operations leading to flight disruptions.
