The passport control system was locked at Istanbul Atatürk Airport’s International departure terminal due to an alleged cyber-attack on July 26. Passengers stood in lines for hours and plane departures were delayed, Doğan news agency reported.

Passport controls were made impossible for hours at both Atatürk and Sabiha Gökçen International airports because of a breakdown in the Istanbul provincial security directorate’s Polnet data system. The lines at the passport control points increased dramatically and some passengers who had been waiting in lines for hours lashed out at airport officials.

The system has been restored however, many planes’ departures were delayed from Istanbul Atatürk Airport.
