Security Issue At Brisbane Airport Causing Extensive Delays

Technical issue causes huge delays at Sydney Airport

A computer problem has forced airport staff to manually process passengers at the T1 worldwide and T2 Domestic terminals.

Sydney Airport has been thrown into chaos this morning.

"We're experiencing technical issues at T1 and T2 causing interruptions to passenger processing and delays", the airport posted on Twitter.

Qantas Airways Ltd, the country's biggest carrier, said it was not affected as it operates out of a different terminal.

Photos and videos of the airport showed uncomfortably long queues as passengers crowded the terminal as a result of the outage. We're working to resolve this technical issue as soon as possible. "And of course security and safety is a top priority".
