POLICE established a security cordon at Bundaberg Airport after a suspicious package was found.

Bundaberg Police Senior Constable Martin Darby said the suspicious package was found in the loading area at the airport late yesterday when it started making a beeping sound.

The package was moved to a safer area of the airport and a 100m security cordon was established about 4pm.

The airport was still operating late yesterday, and a QantasLink flight landed after the security cordon had been set up.

Passengers were allowed through the terminal.
