Emergency services have been stood down at Auckland Airport, where several suspicious packages were found on Sunday morning.

Bomb disposal experts attended the customs freight area on Sunday afternoon after police were called at 11.20am on Sunday and told there were a couple of suspicious packages in the freight area.

Although there has been no threat to passengers or the public, police say they are still unable to confirm the contents of the packages.
