An Air Canada flight travelling from Toronto to Calgary had to make an emergency landing in Winnipeg Monday night after the plane’s cabin air system overheated.

Eight passengers on Airbus A321 reported feeling unwell, said Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick.

Emergency crews were sent to the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport just after 9 p.m.
