Ryanair Calls On Dept Of Transport To Hold Emergency NATFAC Meeting To Urgently Address Security Queues At Dublin Airport

Ryanair (and a number of other Irish airlines) called earlier this week on the Dept of Transport calling for an early meeting of the NATFAC (National Air Transport Facilitation Committee) to urgently address the current crisis and provide solutions to the security queues at Dublin Airport last weekend, which Ryanair believes will recur again this weekend and over next weeks Easter school holidays.

Ryanair believes that the Dept of Transport should hold an urgent crisis meeting of the NATFAC to oversee the implementation of rapid effective solutions, which will avoid long queues and travel chaos at Dublin Airport over the Easter holiday weekend.

A spokesperson for Ryanair said:

“We are deeply disappointed the Dept of Transport, who are responsible for Dublin Airport, have rejected the request from Irish Airlines to hold an urgent NATFAC meeting. Ryanair and other Dublin Airport customers, cannot endure more weekends where thousands of customers suffer queue delays of 1 or 2 hours, causing many to miss their scheduled flights. The Dept of Transport must take responsibility for helping the DAA to solve this short term staffing problem.

It is unacceptable that the Dept of Transport have declined this request for a meeting when urgent action is required to avoid travel chaos at Dublin Airport over the Easter school holidays.

Ryanair calls on Transport Minister Eamonn Ryan to take some responsibility for solving this crisis and immediately hold an emergency meeting of NATFAC so that emergency measures can be implemented by the Govt to avoid huge queues and long flight delays over the Easter school holidays. There is a major short-term problem with staffing at Dublin Airport, and it is the Minister for Transport’s responsibility to intervene at times of crisis such as this by calling an urgent meeting of NATFAC to agree solutions to what we hope will be these short term but unacceptable security queues at Dublin Airport.”
