Sydney Airport has been thrown into chaos this morning.

A computer problem has forced airport staff to manually process passengers at the T1 International and T2 Domestic terminals.

The other domestic terminal, T3, is operated by Qantas and is not experiencing an issue.

Lengthy delays are expected.

“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.

“We know this is stressful … please check with your airline but we do expect delays.”
