Chaos At Aussie Airports As IT Failure Causes Massive Delays

Travellers are being warned to expect lengthy delays and leave plenty of time for processing. 

Flyers are facing huge queues and unprecedented wait times at Australia’s international airports this morning. 

According to a statement from the Australian Border Force, significant delays have been caused by an “IT systems outage” which they’re working with the Department of Home Affairs to resolve.

Both inbound and outbound passengers have been affected at Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane airports. 

All travellers are being warned to expect lengthy delays and to leave plenty of time for processing. 

Reports suggest the IT failure involves electronic passport control machines, which is leading to long wait times for passengers clearing border control.
