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

The technical glitch and subsequent delays come several months after flights were grounded at Sydney Airport's domestic terminal in September past year, due to a technical fault with an air traffic control system, managed by Airservices Australia.

Officials are urging any passengers who planned to fly from Sydney airport today to call their airline and/or check their flight time and status online.

She said Australian Federal Police officers were investigating the matter.

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