Over forty Porter Airlines flights were cancelled Tuesday evening after “system-wide network outages” halted the regional carrier’s operations.
According to a brief statement on the company’s website, the outage affected Porter’s call centre, reservation system and flight planning.
Porter flagged the problem in a tweet shortly before 6 p.m, claiming other airlines were also been affected.
