Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY COR­MAC O’SHEA

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.
