UPDATE: WestJet says previous IT issues have been fixed.
Those travelling on WestJet Saturday were told to plan ahead, due to a “significant” IT outage that impacted everything from reservations to check-ins.
The outage effected multiple systems including phone lines and booking flights online.
Fifty-five flights were delayed due to the technical difficulties, but passengers made it to their destination by end of day, WestJet said in a statement.
Approximately 50 to 60 flights have been delayed anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes so far. We anticipate further delays with the possibility of some cancellations later in the day. Continue to check your flight status at https://t.co/p47pxg3aMq
