People heading to Sydney Airport will experience big delays today, and until further notice, after a major ramp up in security.
A new minimum two-hour check-in time for domestic travellers in Australia is expected to become the norm, after authorities in Sydney foiled a suspected terror plot to bring down a plane with a bomb.
Travellers have been warned to pack light and allow extra check-in time for additional security.
Jetstar and Virgin Australia have upgraded their advice from one hour, also telling passengers to limit carry-on and checked baggage to ensure efficient screening processes. International travellers are advised to arrive three hours before their fight departure time.
Similar queues have been experienced at Melbourne Airport.
Authorities have also warned that delays will continue.
Queues have also been quite heavy at Adelaide Airport.
Allow extra time to insure you make your flight.
