Airport Chaos: Technical issues causing major delays at Sydney Airport

Technical issue causes huge delays at Sydney Airport

Worldwide and domestic flights were both affected by the fault in terminals one and two, with passengers and staff alike not able to pass security. "The majority of delayed services are within 30 minutes to 60 minutes", it said in a statement.

The technical glitch and subsequent delays come several months after flights were grounded at Sydney Airport's domestic terminal in September a year ago, due to a technical fault with an air traffic control system, managed by Airservices Australia.

The T3 Qantas Domestic terminal is apparently not affected. We're working to resolve this technical issue as soon as possible.

We're experiencing technical issues at T1 and T2 causing interruptions to passenger processing and delays.

Alabama police: 2 hurt in accidental school shooting
Wednesday at Huffman High School was accidental or if a gun since recovered by investigators was intentionally discharged. One student was killed and another was injured in a shooting at a high school in Alabama on Wednesday, police said.

The issue prevented passengers from being processed for about two hours, but Sydney Airport said it had resumed screening just after 7.30am.

One passenger reported that passengers on all flights that had boarded but not taken off were offloaded and asked to go through the security screening process again, causing "chaos".

Sydney Airport is returning to normal, having had to work through a large backlog of passengers, after a technical glitch triggered major delays.

Passengers said they had been waiting for nearly two hours as the departure lounge was cordoned off.
