Travellers flying out of Pearson International Airport on Wednesday encountered slightly longer than normal check-in times.

In a tweet just after 4:15 a.m., airport officials said systems relating to check-in and baggage were in recovery mode this morning because of an IT upgrade.

The Greater Toronto Airports Authority said the issue was affecting a number of airlines at Terminal 1 and Terminal 3.

Just before 9:45 a.m., Pearson said the issue was resolved.
