Dublin Airport again paused flights for around an hour at 7pm on February 6 after drones were seen operating close to the facility. Flights were diverted to nearby Belfast and to Shannon in Ireland’s south-west, with one sent across the Irish Sea to Manchester. “The reckless and irresponsible behaviour of those causing ongoing drone disruptions is unacceptable,” the airport said in a statement. “Those found responsible will face prosecution.” it warned. The outage was the third in four days after weekend interruptions saw eight Ryanair flights affected and other flights, from Amsterdam, Bucharest and Manchester, forced to land in Belfast.
