Coronavirus: Robin Swann ‘shocked’ at images of packed flight

Health Minister Robin Swann has said he was shocked at the image and called for Aer Lingus to review its processes.

The carrier said on Tuesday it was adding an extra flight on each day of operation to reduce passenger numbers on each aircraft.

Aer Lingus also advised passengers to give themselves extra time at the airport as the check-in process would take longer to allow for the increased number of bags being put in the aircraft’s hold.

“The safety and security of Aer Lingus’ customers and crew is our number-one priority, and these process changes are being implemented as a matter of urgency.”
