It's business as usual at Auckland Airport in the wake of a security breach.

Passengers had to be re-screened in the domestic terminal, creating long queues and affecting flights - even in Wellington.

An Auckland Airport spokesperson could not confirm the nature of the breach.

Wellington Airport said it had to rescreen passengers for some flights because of the Auckland issue.

Delays to the flight schedule were short-lived, and operations are running as normal again.
