TORONTO: A number of flights at Toronto Pearson International Airport have been delayed or cancelled today.

A spokesperson with the Greater Toronto Airport Authority says the problems are due to a labour disruption between a refuelling company and some airlines.

Spokeswoman Shabeen Hanifa says the disruptions began around 6:30 a.m. but wouldn’t say say how many airlines were affected.

The cancellations and delays primarily affected Air Canada, (TSX:AC) which uses Pearson as its main international hub.

Several WestJet (TSX:WJA) flights were delayed but none was cancelled while Air Transat (TSX:TRZ.B) said none of its flights have been affected.
