Virgin Australia statement on IT system outage

Comments from a Virgin Australia spokesman:

Virgin Australia is pleased to confirm that an IT outage has been resolved and our website and guest contact centres are operating as normal.

Flights are largely operating as scheduled and we apologise to any guest who has been inconvenienced.

Virgin Australia was one of many organisations to experience an outage with the Akamai content delivery system today and we are working with them to ensure that necessary measures are taken to prevent these outages from reoccurring.
