Chaos at Brisbane Airport After "Screening Matter"


An IT failure has caused chaos at Sydney Airport this morning with both the global and domestic terminals affected.

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

Sydney Airport said the technical issue was affecting passenger processing at the T1 global and T2 Domestic terminals up until about 8:30am. We picked that up before we opened the terminal this morning.

The glitch affected outbound flights from its global terminal and one of its two domestic terminals.

As reported by ABC News, technical issues affected passenger processing at the airport's T1 global terminal and T2 Domestic terminal until about 8:30AM when Sydney Airport said that systems were back up and running, and that is was processing passengers again.

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

'Virgin Australia is working to minimise any disruption to passengers caused by the earlier issues and to reaccommodate any affected passengers.

The Airport alerted travellers to the issue on Twitter, urging them to avoid Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 as they work to resolve the issue.

A spokeswoman for Qantas told Daily Mail Australia terminal 3 had not been affected, and flights were running as normal.

In a tweet, Virgin Australia said at 8.40am AEDT Friday, security screening at the airport had reopened and it was operating at normal capacity.
