Aug. 10, 2009, Toronto – WestJet suffered some computer issues on Friday Aug. 7, in the morning, affecting planes at Pearson International Airport's Terminal 3.

Scott Armstrong of the Greater Toronto Airports Authority says the glitch only lasted about an hour.

But he says due to the number of WestJet flights scheduled to depart early today, some delays could still occur.

According to the GTAA website, an 8:30 a.m. ET WestJet flight to Calgary and an 8:25 a.m. flight to Calgary were cancelled.
