  • Passengers are seen waiting in line due to hardware and technical issues at the Domestic Airport in Sydney

A "security matter" is being investigated by police at Brisbane International Airport, causing delays to flights as boarding has been cancelled.

Sydney Airport said on Friday a technical snag caused interruptions in passenger processing at two of its terminals, causing hours of delay for travellers.

A spokeswoman for Qantas told Daily Mail Australia terminal 3 had not been affected, and flights were running as normal.

A spokesman from Jetstar told Daily Mail Australia they are still facing delays of an hour on average, almost five hours after the issue was resolved.

"We are experiencing outbound delays while we fix this technical issue which we're working to rectify as quickly as we can", Sally Fielke, general manager of Corporate Affairs at the airport, told the ABC.

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

"We're advising passengers and visitors to avoid T1 and T2 until further notice", a Tweet from Sydney Airport said at 6:08am.

"Please contact your airline for flight status".

"The AFP is assisting Brisbane Airport security staff following a routine passenger screening matter", a statement from the Australian Federal Police said.

Many passengers have taken to social media to share their frustration.

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