Technical issue causes huge delays at Sydney Airport

Sydney Airport was left scrambling to catch up on passenger processing after being hit by a "technology issue" early on 9 March that caused delays at some terminals.

If there's anywhere you would want to avoid this morning, it would be Sydney airport... We picked that up before we opened the terminal this morning.

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

The security screening process at the International Terminal was interrupted after an incident.

"Our terminal staff are on hand to provide updates".

The airport has now resumed processing passengers as per usual, it said on Twitter, without specifying details of the problem.

"All we have been told is that the airport is in lockdown", he said.

"Virgin Australia is holding flights to minimise any disruption to passengers and working to reaccommodate any affected passenger".

A spokeswoman for Brisbane Airport told the Courier Mail security screens were closed for 30 minutes after the breach.

She said Australian Federal Police officers were investigating the matter.

Meanwhile in Brisbane a passenger set off a security screen at the global terminal, causing a backlog of commuters.

Passengers said they had been waiting for nearly two hours as the departure lounge was cordoned off.
