‘Technical problem’ causes long queues and flight delays at Launceston Airport

A “technical problem” that caused delays for travellers at Launceston Airport this morning has been revealed to be the result of a power outage.

Two flights were delayed by around 90 minutes due to the outage, with long check-in queues also inconveniencing travellers.


The airport acknowledged the issue at 9am on Monday morning in a brief social media post and advised travellers to allow for extra time when passing through the terminal.

Both the check-in and boarding systems were affected, leading to extended wait times for travellers, before the issue was resolved three hours later at 12pm.
