Labour Spokesperson for Transport Sen. Kevin Humphreys has described as ‘reckless’ the behavior of those involved in the ongoing incident at Dublin airport reportedly involving a drone being flown over the airfields.

Senator Humphreys said:

” I am hopeful that the Dublin Airport Authority has a strategy in place to deal with this incent, and does not just rely on the 5km exclusion. zones for drones at airports.

“Airlines and Airport Authorities must now make every effort to reduce any inconvenience for the traveling public and return to business as usual as quickly as possible.”
