Fairfax Media’s Julie Posetti said she was told by Virgin Australia at the airport that the air bridge doors had locked shut, separating crew and passengers across the airport.

Her flight to Sydney was delayed for 90 minutes.

About 8.30pm, a Melbourne Airport spokeswoman said the technical issue was rectified, but she couldn’t say what further delays the customers would have to face.

Ms Posetti said the doors were shut for one hour, causing significant delays.
