Toronto/CMEDIA: A technical issue impacting Sunwing Airlines has caused delays in numerous flights, including at least 10 departing from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

The technical issue is impacting several carriers globally, the airline said.

“We sincerely regret the impact this is having on our customers’ travel plans and are working diligently with our technology provider to resolve the issue as soon as possible so that regular flight operations can resume,” a spokesperson for Sunwing said in a statement Monday.

“Best attempts are being made to notify passengers of the impact to their flights where possible, and we strongly encourage all customers with departing flights over the next day to check their flight status before heading to the airport.”
