Air Canada flights delayed as airline faces 2nd technical issue in a week

Air Canada says a technical issue is delaying flights across its network on Thursday.

The airline said in a statement to Global News that it is continuing to operate flights “at a reduced rate.”

Air Canada flagged a “temporary technical issue” with its communicator system used to communicate with and monitor aircraft as the source of the delays.

“Customers are advised to check their flights before going to the airport. We apologize to those affected, and appreciate their patience,” a spokesperson said.

The delays come a week after Air Canada’s flights were grounded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the U.S. over another issue it described as a problem with the communicator system. That stoppage lasted a little under an hour.
