SINGAPORE: Changi Airport’s website suffered a brief outage at about 4am on Friday (June 21), and it went back online soon after.

The disruption had no impact on airport operations, airport operator Changi Airport Group (CAG) said in a statement on the evening of June 21.

“Changi Airport Group’s information technology team responded and restored the website shortly after,” CAG said.

The website, which shows information on arriving and departing flights as well as maps of the airport’s terminals, was unavailable for about 1½ hours.

The Straits Times has contacted CAG for more information, such as the cause of the disruption, whether any data was lost as a result and if the disruption was a cyber attack.

The Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) said it was aware of the service disruption to the airport website and was working with CAG on the case.

If they need technical help, they can contact the CSA Singapore Cyber Emergency Response Team, which responds to cyber-security incidents, at singcert@csa.gov.sg, the agency added. - The Straits Times/ANN
