Security Issue At Brisbane Airport Causing Extensive Delays

The incident resulted in the entire departure lounge at the worldwide terminal at one point being cordoned off, with security searching through plant boxes, bins and under furniture. "We are working hard to catch up any delays", the airport said. We picked that up before we opened the terminal this morning.

Sydney Airport said on Friday a technical snag caused interruptions in passenger processing at two of its terminals, causing hours of delay for travellers.

Passengers are being urged to avoid these terminals as the airport staff work to resolve the issue.

"We will start some manual processing so flights can start to move".

Outbound passengers at Sydney's T1 worldwide and T2 Domestic terminals were prevented from checking in for their scheduled flights, and airline staff were reportedly processing some passengers manually.
