IT issue caused Air Canada to delay takeoffs at several airports

A problem with the communicator system is to blame

Air Canada is warning customers to check the status of their flights after an IT issue caused the airline to ground flights Thursday morning.

According to CTV News, a problem with its computer system impacted flights at multiple airports. “[This is]one of the systems that we use to communicate with aircraft and monitor operational performance,” the airline told the publication.

“We continue to recover from this morning’s IT issue and temporary ground stop program,” the company tweeted.

It’s unclear what caused the technical issue and if a cyber security issue was at play.
