Statement from the Irish Aviation Authority

22:45 - 2 October, 2018

 

Earlier this evening a technical issue occurred with the Shannon ATC system.

 

Safety is the IAA’s main priority and in accordance with normal procedure the IAA restricted air traffic while the issue was being investigated.

 

Flights to and from Shannon and Cork were affected by the restriction.  Dublin was not affected.

 

As part of planned contingency, the IAA moved to its back-up systems and the flight restrictions have been lifted.

 

Traffic flows are now in the process of being restored to normal capacity.

 

Flights are now operating again to and from Shannon and Cork.

 

An investigation into the technical issue is ongoing.

 

Intending passengers should check with their airlines.
