Shannon ATC system outage repaired says IAA

On October 2, a technical issue occurred with the Shannon ATC system, which forced the Irish Aviation Authority (IIA) to restrict air traffic while the issue was being investigated. Flights to and from Shannon and Cork were affected by the restriction.  Dublin was not affected.

As part of planned contingency, the IAA moved to its back-up systems and the flight restrictions were lifted. Traffic flows quickly restored to normal capacity. An investigation into the technical issue is ongoing, says IIA.
