Erfurt (dpa/th) – The website of Erfurt-Weimar Airport is accessible again. As a precaution, the website had to be shut down on Thursday morning due to heavy traffic, a spokesman said.

So far there is no evidence of what caused the overload. The Internet provider checks whether it is a hacker attack. There was no damage to the IT systems, the spokesman said.

The airport’s other computer systems were not affected by the disruption, it said. There would have been no restrictions on flight operations. According to the spokesman, there was already a similar overload at the end of January, as a result of which the website also had to be shut down at short notice.

The airport is Thuringia’s only international airport. The majority shareholder of the airport is the state.
