Amadeus, the company whose technology airlines and airports use for check-in, confirmed to FOX Business it is experienced a "network issue" that caused problems for some of their systems.

It reported that the problem was related to the Amadeus Altea flight management system, which is used by 125 airlines.

The Australian flag carrier attributed the issues to a "system outage [that] affected airlines globally".

"A small number of airlines are experiencing problems across the world and we're working closely with them to solve the issue", Heathrow airport was quoted as saying.

While the delays lasted only a few minutes in some locations, many airports and passengers reported long lines and confusion due to the glitch.

The program, known as Altea and developed by a company called Amadeus, encountered problems as a result of what Amadeus called a "network issue".

Southwest experienced computer problems at multiple USA airports, prompting delayed travelers to tweet their frustration.

A software glitch is behind a systems crash which has hit several airports worldwide. Airlines like Delta and British Airways have suffered from IT outages in 2017 which forced the cancellations of hundreds of flights. That action is ongoing with services gradually being restored.

A spokesperson for the airport told Channel NewsAsia that airlines affected include Singapore Airlines, Qantas and Lufthansa.

Air France said that it had experienced problems for 15 minutes and that its systems were slowly coming back online.
