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.
