Porter Airlines said at least 20 flights have been cancelled due to a telecom outage in the United States.

Porter Airlines has cancelled at least 20 flights from Billy Bishop airport due to a telecom outage in the United States.

In a tweet issued around 6 p.m. on Wednesday, the airport said the outage is preventing Porter Airlines from checking in passengers for trans-border flights.

Trans-border passengers have been told they can expect significant delays and disruptions.

Porter said passengers affected by the delays or cancellations would be offered compensation based on their specific situations.

Domestic passengers are still able to check in manually to their flights, but will likely face delays as well, Porter said.
