Flight and airport operations are resuming at Pearson International Airport after power issues affected parts of the airport.

The power issues started around 4:30 a.m. on Thursday.

“Power bump is affecting parts of Terminal 1. We are working to fully restore power. Please check flight info with airlines,” Pearson said in a tweet.

Power was restored just after 6 a.m.

The “power bump” caused the computer systems to shut down and be rebooted, leading to passenger lineups and delays.

Some check-in counters were closed but have since reopened.

The flight status boards showing cancellations and delays are still not working, but is expected to be back online shortly as the system gets rebooted.

Inbound and outbound flights were not affected by the power outage. At one point, around 100 flights were affected but that those were weather-related.

Travellers are still being advised to check their flight status before heading to the airport.
