Air traffic at highest ever ..despite row
SEPTEMBER was a recordbreaking month for air traffic in Ireland – despite Ryanair’s pilot crisis. The Irish Aviation Authority confirmed there was 103,925 flight movements handled. The record figures come even as Ryanair cancelled up to 50 flights a day after roster problems. Air traffic was up at the State airports of Dublin and Cork and the overall figure marks an increase of 4.1% over September 2016. These includes terminal movements, North Atlantic Communications flights and flights that don’t land in Ireland. September also saw Air Canada announce expansion plans for transatlantic services which will lead to even more movements.
