Air Canada computer glitch causing long lines across Canadian airports

The airline experienced problems with its computerized systems this morning, meaning passengers were not able to check in or drop off their luggage. After around three hours, Air Canada issued an apology and said that things were on the mend.

Earlier on Monday, Vancouver International Airport and Calgary International Airport took to Twitter to inform passengers there were technical issues with Air Canada's computer systems nationwide that were causing congestion.

The glitch led to long delays at YVR for passengers who either had to wait a long time or weren't able to board their flights. The carrier said it was "experiencing some flight delays, but we're getting everyone on their way".

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.

The airline has not immediately replied to a request for comment from CBC News. According to flight-tracking website FlightAware.com, Air Canada was experiencing almost 170 total flight delays as of Monday afternoon. "Thank you for your patience".
