Around 4 thousand people will be affected by Aer Lingus flight cancellations this weekend.

The airline has called off six flights at Dublin Airport today - partly because several staff have Covid.

It includes a number of trips to Eurpean locations, like to London, Amsterdam and Lyon.

Over 100,000 people will still depart Dublin Airport this weekend, with delays expected due to the DAA's own staffing problems.

Wait times at security in both terminals are between twenty and twenty five minutes.

That’s around the average time at any given hour this morning, aside from when a rush of passengers between three and four in the morning led to queues spilling out the door of Terminal 1.


Aer Lingus passengers continue to be haunted by cancellations, after flights to Gatwick, Lyon and Amsterdam were pulled.

The airline says the cancellations are caused by a Covid spike among their staff, as well as strikes in France.

Meanwhile, Swissport, one of the baggage handlers at the airport, has apologised for its part in delays and complications.
