Sydney airport delays hit travellers with queues snaking out of terminals

Travellers at Sydney airport were again hit by long delays on Monday morning with check-in queues spilling out of the terminal.

A spokesperson for the airport said staff shortages were to blame for the extended wait times as lines stretched out in excess of 150 metres to get through security screening at domestic terminals.

Sydney Airport’s security queue snacking its way through the domestic terminal and out the door. I arrived at the airport an hour and a half before my flight this morning and spent over an hour in the security queue. Made it in just the nick of time @GuardianAus pic.twitter.com/lSEHFvL2LV

— Fleur Connick (@ConnickFleur) August 14, 2022 “Our security contractor has had significant staff sick leave today, meaning some security screening lanes were not able to be opened,” the spokesperson said.

“We have customer service staff on the ground bringing passengers forward according to flight priority.

“We are sorry about the disruption and working hard to get everyone on their way.”
