Auckland International Airport passengers face long delays after security mishap
Passengers at Auckland Airport are finally boarding their planes after significant delays from a power cut to a metal detector on Wednesday night.
That was after security re-screened up to 1000 people who had already passed security – and in some cases had already boarded their flights.
The airport tweeted just before 8pm that flight security provider Aviation Security had "temporarily halted" screening on international flights.

Aviation Security spokesman Mike Richards said there was a "power supply interruption" to one of the metal detectors at the screening point.
