Travellers' flight plans were briefly disrupted after a workman accidentally set off a fire alarm at Auckland's domestic terminal yesterday.

The incident happened about 3.45pm, an airport spokesman said.

The terminal was evacuated as emergency services checked the alarm.

There were some small delays in flights, but backlogs were cleared quickly, the spokesman said.
