Sydney Airport delays as computer glitch causes terminal chaos

Sydney Airport delays as computer glitch causes terminal chaos

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

It affected systems including the airport's CCTV, meaning passengers could not be screened for about two hours.

While inbound flights were OK, passengers at the T1 global and T2 Domestic terminals arrived at the airport on Friday morning to swarms of people waiting in line and wondering what the hell was going on. "The majority of delayed services are within 30 minutes to 60 minutes", it said in a statement.

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

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

Officials are urging any passengers who planned to fly from Sydney airport today to call their airline and/or check their flight time and status online.

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

The T3 Domestic terminal, which is operated by Qantas, was not affected.

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

The security screening has also been closed as Queensland Police investigate the matter. "And some of those systems we use to make sure the airport's secure".
