Dublin Airport flights resume after drone sparks suspension

Dublin Airport yesterday briefly suspended flights following the "confirmed sighting" of a drone at the airfield north of the Irish capital.

Aviation authorities apologised to passengers for the suspension of flights for around 15 minutes after the aerial device was spotted in the skies overhead.

"Flight operations have now resumed... following an earlier drone sighting," the airport said on Twitter at around midday (1200 GMT).

Dublin Airport, which lies about six miles (10 kilometres) north of the city centre, handled nearly 30 million passengers in 2017.
