A "security matter" is being investigated by police at Brisbane International Airport, causing delays to flights as boarding has been cancelled. "We are working hard to catch up any delays", it said.

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

"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", an airport spokesman said in a statement.

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

Qantas' domestic Terminal 3 has not been affected.

Virgin Australia flights were also recovering from significant delays, which included two cancellations.

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".

A spokeswoman for the airport said security screens were closed for 30 minutes as a result of the breach this morning, leading to a backlog.

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