NNA - Flight operations at Dublin airport were briefly suspended on Thursday due to the confirmed sighting of a drone over the airfield, Ireland’s largest airport said, the first time such disruption has been caused at an Irish airport.


Dublin airport told passengers on its Twitter page that it had suspended operations at 1149 GMT, before resuming 15 minutes later.


The flying of drones over Britain’s second-busiest airport, London’s Gatwick, sparked 36 hours of travel chaos last December while flights at Dubai International Airport were temporarily grounded last week due to suspected drone activity.--REUTERS
