Security is heightened in airports across the country following the alleged Islamic-inspired terror plot that was thwarted on Saturday.

Heavily-armed police stormed a Surry Hills home in the inner east of Sydney at 4pm before officers raided properties in Lakemba, Punchbowl and Wiley Park resulting in the arrests of four men.

Commissioner Andrew Colvin addressed the media at a press conference on Sunday morning and said details about the alleged terror plot are still developing.

‘We don’t have a great deal of information on the specific attack, the location, date or time, however, we’re investigating information indicating the aviation industry was potentially a target of that attack,’ AFP Commissioner Colvin said.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull reiterated the raids were aimed at stopping an alleged terror plot to ‘bring down’ a plane and said security screening will take longer over the coming days.

‘Some of the measures will be obvious to the public, some will not be — those travelling should go about their business with confidence,’ Mr Turnbull said in a press conference on Sunday morning.

‘The office of transport security has advised security screening will take longer, and travellers should arrive at terminals at least two hours before flights to allow ample time for screening.
