THE “technical issue” which grounded all flights in and out of Sydney Airport this morning has been resolved, but passengers can still expect travel chaos across the country.
Airservies Australia, the agency that controls air traffic control systems around Australia, has confirmed that the system outage has been addressed and that flights can now resume.
However, passengers have been told to be patient as the bungle will have a major knock-on effect for the entire country.
“The issue has been addressed but the airport is not at normal capacity. We are working hard to clear the backlog of flights,” Airservices Australia spokeswoman Sarah Fulton told AAP.
