Air Canada was forced to ground its flights Thursday after suffering an internal technical issue.
Flights were delayed at several airports as a result of a “temporary technical issue” with flight communications.
“Air Canada experienced a temporary technical issue with its communicator system, one of the systems that we use to communicate with aircraft and monitor operational performance,” a spokesperson said in an email to CTV News. “There have been some limited delays as a result, however, the system is now returning to normal and the precautionary ground stop has been lifted.”
Air Canada flights out Toronto Pearson International Airport were beginning to resume just before 1 p.m.
