Sydney Airport glitch causes long queues

Technical issue causes huge delays at Sydney Airport

The glitch affected outbound flights from its worldwide terminal and one of its two domestic terminals.

There are now delays at Brisbane Airport following a security matter. "The majority of delayed services are within 30 minutes to 60 minutes", it said in a statement.

Sydney Airport has begun processing passengers after it came to a standstill on Friday morning following "technical issues" that affected two of its terminals.

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

"We are experiencing outbound delays while we fix this technical issue which we're working to rectify as quickly as we can", she said.

Giants acquire LB Ogletree from Rams for draft picks
A first-round pick out of Georgia in the 2013 draft, Ogletree had his best season in 2016, when he was named second-team All-Pro. Trades can't become official until the new NFL league year opens on March 14.

The Courier Mail reports a passenger set off a security screen, causing a backlog of passengers now scrambling to catch their flights.

Almost 16 million of those were worldwide passengers, with those from China being one of the major sources of travellers, according to airport figures.

A technical issue with an air traffic control system had briefly grounded flights at the Sydney Airport last September.

A spokesperson for Sydney Airport told ARN that the technical problems arose from "an underlying technology issue that we were addressing".

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