WestJet says systems are running again, but the senior manager of airport operations at Kelowna International Airport, Phillip Elchitz, says rolling delays are still to be expected.
“Overnight the IT system went down and as a result we’ve seen several cancellations and a fair amount of delays,” said Elchitz.
All systems are now online and stable. We unfortunately anticipate further disruptions as we work to recover from the system-wide outage. We are sincerely sorry for the significant inconvenience.

At YLW, WestJet has cancelled a total of six flights for Nov. 6.
Elchitz says the rolling delays are from waiting on planes delayed at other airports.
Elchitz also says the weather expected to start around noon may cause challenges for air travellers.
“It’ll be important for people to check their flight status either at the ylw.kelowna.ca website or through their airline.”
