Ryanair has called on the Transport Minister to make sure anti-drone equipment at Dublin Airport is ready for the busy Easter holiday period.
Flights at Dublin Airport had to temporarily stop six times in the first eight weeks of this year due to illegal drone activity.
The Government has promised new anti drone technology to tackle the problem but it's not in place yet.
Ryanair is now calling on the Transport Minister to make it ready for this week and next.
A spokesperson says Eamon Ryan must protect passengers so they don't suffer any closures or disruptions over the next few weeks.
They said ''It is unacceptable that flights and passengers have suffered repeated delays and diversions due to illegal drone activity at Dublin Airport on six separate days in 2023. Transport Min. Eamon Ryan promised to protect passengers with anti-drone equipment, so he must now confirm that this equipment is in place and fully operational at Dublin Airport in advance of the busy Easter holidays, so that Irish passengers/visitors and their families will not suffer any more closures/disruptions due to illegal drone activity at Dublin Airport.''
