Ceist:

209. Deputy Sorca Clarke asked the Minister for Transport if his attention has been drawn to the night-time low level flight on 3 November 2020 which left the East Midlands Airport, Derby, England at 11.02pm and spent more than four hours flying back and forth across County Westmeath and neighbouring counties before returning to UK airspace and landing at Nottingham Airport at 5.45am; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As the issue of the management of flight paths within Irish airspace is an operational matter for the Irish Aviation Authority, I have referred the Deputy's question to the Authority for direct reply.

Please advise my private office if a response is not received within ten working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 51
