Air Canada computer issues cause congestion at some airports

Air Canada has confirmed a system outage is leading to service interruptions as angry passengers take to Twitter to complain about long lines and flight delays during the March break travel rush.

Officials say they have implemented temporary measures to "maintain a limited operation" while the airline's IT department works to identify the issue and restore service.

Michael Badejo, spokesperson with the Winnipeg Airports Authority, said four flights have been delayed, affecting about 200 people.

At this time, the Regina airport website is not showing any problems with Air Canada flights, but that could change depending on the congestion at other terminals.

There were long lines reported at airports, including at Pearson International Airport, as well as in Vancouver, Montreal, and Calgary.

Those at the Regina Airport who are either leaving or flying out on an Air Canada flight may want to check on the status of their flight.

The airline has not immediately replied to a request for comment from CBC News. "We thank customers for their patience".

It appears the problem didn't only affect Air Canada flights in this country.
