Passengers at the domestic terminal wait to go through security after technical issues effectively shut down the airport

A passenger has set off a security screen at Brisbane Airport's worldwide terminal, causing a backlog of commuters now scrambling to reach their flights.

At this stage no outbound passengers are leaving from Terminal 1 or Terminal 2 and flights are being held or rescheduled.

The Airport issued a statement saying they were experiencing technical issues at the T1 global and T2 Domestic terminals causing interruptions to passengers and delays.

Sydney Airport is returning to normal, having had to work through a large backlog of passengers, after a technical glitch triggered major delays. Almost 16 million of those were global passengers, with those from China being one of the major sources of travellers, according to airport figures.

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

Another, which requires a little more work, is meant to be paired with Walmart's rotisserie chicken. Walmart, based in Bentonville, Arkansas, has continued its battle with Amazon for shoppers.

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

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

At about 8:30am, Sydney Airport reported they had resumed processing passengers as normal and were "working hard to catch up on delays", a Tweet from the company said.

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