ALL flights through the T2 domestic terminal at Sydney airport are being affected by a power interruption, leaving crushing queues and thousands of delayed passengers.

A spokeswoman for Sydney Airport Corporation said there was a "power interruption" on Friday morning at the T2 domestic terminal, which services airlines including Virgin Australia, Jetstar and Rex.

The power outage means that baggage handling and check-in facilities are down. Passengers arriving for flights cannot be screened by security.

The outage is also affecting a number of aerobridge gangways between the terminal buildings and aircraft.

It is understood the outage started at about 8.30am.
