"Underlying technology issue" sees Sydney Airport hit by delays

Technical issue causes huge delays at Sydney Airport

Inbound flights and Qantas flights from T3 remain unaffected. We picked that up before we opened the terminal this morning.

A technical problem hit the air hub of Australia's New South Wales state capital on Friday, when flight delays left crowds of global and domestic passengers stranded for hours, according to Sydney airport authorities.

As reported by ABC News, technical issues affected passenger processing at the airport's T1 worldwide 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.

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

Brisbane Airport tweeted at 9.22am that the incident was ongoing and would cause delays for passengers trying to get through the security screening process, but no other information was made available. We're working to resolve this technical issue as soon as possible.

This latest news could make it even more hard for the Texans to lure free agents, especially after the comment made by team owner Bob McNair regarding player protests last October.

"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".

"Virgin Australia is holding flights to minimise any disruption to passengers and working to reaccommodate any affected passenger".

The security screening has also been closed as Queensland Police investigate the matter.

In July a year ago, Jetstar flights faced a string of delays across Australia, following a system outage originating from Sydney Airport.
