All flights at Dublin Airport were temporarily suspended on Tuesday evening following drone activity in the area.
A post on the airport’s Twitter feed shortly before 9pm said: “Due to illegal drone activity in the vicinity of Dublin Airport, all flight operations are currently suspended.”
A message sent out some minutes later said: “Flight operations at Dublin Airport have now resumed after a suspension of 30 minutes.”
Earlier in the day, a 41-year-old man accused of causing a security alert by flying a drone into a “critical area” of Dublin Airport has been granted bail.
Gardaí arrested Ainis Guzauskus of Ridgewood Close, Swords, Dublin, this afternoon after receiving preliminary directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to charge him with an offence under Section 43 of the Air Navigation and Transport Act, 1988.
He is accused of knowingly causing a false alarm by flying an unmanned aerial system (drone) into the critical area of Dublin Airport, which interfered with the operation of an aerodrome on 2 July, 2022.
