Earlier this week Sydney airport experienced a power outage, leaving thousands of passengers grounded unable to fly to their respective destinations. 

Systems went down just after 5am and resulted in radar failures at air traffic control, preventing all flights from leaving the domestic and international airports.

By mid-morning, queues stretched out the front doors of all terminals at the major airport as airline staff battled to contend with cancelled flights.

It’s understood air traffic control has had to revert to a manual process for departing flights, and is now allowing just 15 planes in and out of the airport every hour.

Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide airport are reporting huge delays as well as they deal with the backlog of flights unable to touch down at Sydney.
