Aviation Policy Published

Ireland's new National Aviation Policy has been launched. 'No one can say this was a rushed job having been kicked off in December 2012' says ITIC. 'Given that over 80% of our visitors arrive by air, this policy clearly has implications for tourism'.
 Main features relevant to tourism include:
* The retention of Dublin, Cork and Shannon Airports in state ownership.
* Support for regional airports to continue through 2019.
* An independent review of the regulatory regime for airport charges to be commenced before the end of this year.
* Aspirations for increased connectivity, especially with emerging markets.
* The promotion of Dublin Airport as a secondary transatlantic hub.
* The achievement of a high level of competition between airlines operating in the Irish market.

 Despite initial warnings that flights in and out of Dublin could be delayed by several hours, possibly up to midday, operations resumed at 8.45am.
 The fire broke out in the roof of hangar three towards the rear of the airport grounds and it was contained in just over an hour.
