Aussie Travellers Facing Massive Airport Lines Thanks To Beefed-Up Security

Australian police officers at work in the Surry Hills suburb of Sydney

Speaking to Sky News, Justice Minister Keenan said that security would be tightened for the foreseeable future, causing delays for both domestic and global travellers, but they would ensure that Australia's "world-leading" security and intelligence agencies can keep people safe.

There are no changes to what can and cannot be carried on-board an aircraft.

If the terror attack in Australia succeeded, airplane passengers may have found themselves being gassed. We are never complacent.

The country's national terrorism threat level is still at "probable".

He also hosed down speculation about a "terror tax" that could provide airports with the resources necessary to provide extra security but potentially lead to greater costs for consumers.

Scenes from Sydney airport have emerged of passengers queuing all the way out of the terminal, to the end of the kiss "n" ride section, having to wait for hours just to get into the airport.

Border Protection Minister Peter Dutton warned travellers to be prepared for disruption.

Passengers go through a security check before walking to departure gates at the Sydney Airport domestic terminal on Sunday.

'Be assured, we have the finest security and intelligence services in the world, ' Mr Turnbull said.

"Given the additional screening requirements, we ask passengers to arrive at the terminal two hours before domestic flights and three hours before global flights".

"We're advising people to get to Newcastle Airport about half an hour earlier than you wold normally come to the airport", he said.

Travellers are also being being urged to limit the amount of baggage they take on flights to help speed up the screening process. Some measures will be obvious and others will be covert.

Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin said they had no reason to believe airport security had been "compromised" but screening at all major airports has been ramped up.

A Qantas spokesperson said: "The Qantas Group is working closely with government and our airport partners to implement the increased security measures at Australian airports".
