Air Canada travelers have taken to Twitter in frustration over the service interruption.

Passengers were being checked in manually at airports across the country including Calgary and that caused a few lineups and delays.

Due to a malfunction with Air Canada's system, passengers are unable to check in and drop off baggage.

Air Canada is reporting a problem at its customer contact centres, preventing customers from checking in for a flight or booking a flight. "We thank customers for their patience".

According to reports from multiple airports, including Toronto and Calgary, Air Canada is now experiencing a network outage nationwide with its computer system across the country.

European Union says Ukraine must to more to fight corruption

Air Canada is responding to people on Twitter, saying they apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have the system back up and running soon.

At first, it appeared the outage was only in Canada, but check-in counters around the world were also impacted.

Air Canada says the problem has been fixed, but passengers should continue to expect delays.
