  • Passengers Told To AVOID Sydney Airport This Morning

The airport is now experiencing technical issues at security and check-in desks, causing major interruptions to outbound flights.

A security incident is causing significant delays at Brisbane Airport's global terminal.

The other domestic terminal, T3, is operated by Qantas and did not experience the same issue.

One passenger reported that passengers on all flights that had boarded but not taken off were offloaded and asked to go through the security screening process again, causing "chaos".

Virgin Australia said it was holding some flights to minimise disruptions and was working to re-accommodate those affected.

Jetstar expected the issue to create a backlog of up to two hours throughout the day.

"We're working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible and thank you for your patience".

"The safety and security of our passengers is our number one priority and we are pleased to say that all systems are operating as normal", an airport spokesman said in a statement.

"There may be some delays as a result, however guests are advised to arrive at the airport as planned for their upcoming Virgin Australia flight", it posted on Twitter.

The IT issue means that passengers are not able to proceed through security, the delays have hit early morning travelers in the T1 and T2 terminals hard, leaving hundreds stranded.

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

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