Mumbai: Normal services resumed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport here on Thursday after "operations were disturbed for about 40 minutes".

The computer server at Terminal 2 of Mumbai airport was down, leading to long queues as check-ins were done in the manual mode, potentially upsetting the schedule for some flights. It was caused after a network cable was cut due to "ongoing work elsewhere in the city", said the firm that operates the Mumbai airport, India's second busiest after the one in Delhi.

One of two terminals of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, T2 mostly deals with international flights but is also used for domestic routes.

Earlier, massive crowds of passengers were seen sitting or moving around in the Terminal 2. Some harried passengers took to social media to vent their ire at the delays, the overcrowding and even advised other passengers to reach the airport well in time to avoid missing flights, etc.
