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

"We are now processing passengers at Sydney Airport". We picked that up before we opened the terminal this morning.

Some passengers are being re-screened, and a number of global flights will be delayed. We're advising passengers and visitors to avoid T1 and T2 until further notice, ' the statement read.

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

At around 7:45AM Sydney Airport Tweeted that it was once again processing passengers in the affected terminals.


Qantas Airways Ltd, the country's biggest carrier, said it was not affected as it operates out of a different terminal.

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.

The technical failure was resolved about 6.30am, 90 minutes after passengers were initially stranded.

Australian Federal Police officers are investigating the matter.

"Sydney airport security screening isn't working this morning, so every passenger for the next 2 hours' worth of domestic flights is now crushed into the check in area waiting for the gates to open", tweeted one.
