"Underlying technology issue" sees Sydney Airport hit by delays

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

"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".

Some passengers are being re-screened, and a number of global flights will be delayed.

The T3 Qantas Domestic terminal is apparently not affected.

Sydney Airport said the technical issue was affecting passenger processing at the T1 worldwide and T2 Domestic terminals up until about 8:30am.
