All flights at Melbourne Airport were suspended this morning after a fire alarm sounded in a control tower.
Passengers told all inbound and outbound flights had been put on hold after the tower was evacuated as a result of the alarm.
Inbound flights were forced to circle the airport while they waited for clearance to land.
The airport later confirmed on Twitter that staff had been allowed back into the tower.
9News presenter Vanessa O’Hanlon was on a plane that was forced to wait on the tarmac.
Delays are expected as flights are returned to schedule.
