A computer glitch which caused major delays at international airports around the world this morning has been fixed.
The system which airlines use to process a passengers passport before they can travel internationally had as meltdown around 7:30am (AEST). The only way to get people on planes was for check-in staff to manually process passengers the old fashion way, resulting in massive queues.
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection said it was aware of an external system outage with the Society International Telecommunications Aeronautiques system which impacted travelers entering and departing Australia.
The glitch also impacted some airports in the United States, United Kingdom and New Zealand.
