A passenger has set off a security screen at Brisbane Airport's global terminal, causing a backlog of commuters now scrambling to reach their flights.

The other domestic terminal, T3, is operated by Qantas and did not experience the same issue.

Officials are urging any passengers who planned to fly from Sydney airport today to call their airline and/or check their flight time and status online.
