Sydney Airport delays as computer glitch causes terminal chaos

Sydney Airport delays as computer glitch causes terminal chaos

An IT failure has caused chaos at Sydney Airport this morning with both the global and domestic terminals affected.

"There may be some delays as a result, however guests are advised to arrive at the airport as planned for their upcoming Virgin Australia flight", it posted on Twitter.

At around 6:30 AM on 25 September, Airservices Australia said on social media it was "working to rectify the issue while managing traffic safely" as boards at the airport listed flights as "delayed due to ATC radar failure".

Passengers are being urged to avoid these terminals as the airport staff work to resolve the issue.

"Please contact your airline for flight status".

"We're advising passengers and visitors to avoid T1 and T2 until further notice".

Cohen reportedly lamented to those close to him about not being reimbursed right away following the payment to Daniels. Asked for comment on the report, Cohen replied, "Fake news", according to The Wall Street Journal .

Sydney Airport released a statement about six am, blaming "technical issues" at T1 and T2, which were causing interruptions to passenger processing and delays.

The other domestic terminal, T3, is operated by Qantas and did not experience the same issue.

The airport is yet to estimate when the issue will be completely resolved.

Meanwhile in Brisbane a passenger set off a security screen at the worldwide terminal, causing a backlog of commuters.

Australian Federal Police officers are investigating the matter.

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