Flights from and to Dublin Airport are affected by a radar issue on Saturday morning. Flight operations have temporarily been halted.

The largest airport in Ireland announced on social media that an issue with the IAA (Irish Aviation Authority) air traffic radar system at Dublin Airport caused the temporary suspension of operations.

Arriving flights diverted to nearby airports, whereas departures were halted for approximately 1,5 hours. Delays are expected throughout the day.

In October, the Shannon air traffic control (ATC) centre experienced a radar system failure as well. Flights to and from most of Ireland’s airports were affected.
