SpiceJet tweeted after receiving multiple queries on the delay in departure, "Some SpiceJet systems suffered a ransomware attack last night, which affected and slowed down this morning's flight. Our IT team has handled the situation." Controlled and recovered and flights are operating normally."
Meanwhile, as soon as passengers stranded at airports raised concerns over the delay, the ground staff informed them that the 'server is down'. Many passengers also made many tweets regarding this. One of which, Saurav Goyal tweeted, "Extremely poor customer service by flyspicejet. My flight from Delhi to Srinagar SG473 scheduled at 6.25 am still at the airport. Staff has no whereabouts and bad excuse 'servers' Down'. Passengers are facing trouble."
