Security breach at Brisbane Airport 'minor' says Qantas


Graham Cairns

Qantas says a passenger who managed to get through to the terminal at Brisbane airport without going through security caused minor delays, but didn't spark a full-blown security scare on Saturday.

Passengers reported long queues and lengthy delays, amid reports that the Domestic terminal was having to be cleared, but Qantas PR said that's not what actually happened.

A spokeswoman has told Fairfax Media that a passenger went through the wrong entrance, and was brought out again - but denied there was any major security breach.

She said security staff at the airport described the incident as 'minor', but passengers who were in the area of the security checkpoint said they were told of lengthy flight delays and to expect 'long queues'.

  • Ditto an International Thai Airways flight from Brisbane to Bangkok delayed for four hours about six months ago. Stuffed up connecting flights wholesale.
