Ryanair flight from Dublin to Kerry forced to turn back after take-off
The airline has apologised to those affected.
Passengers on a Ryanair flight from Dublin to Kerry experienced notable disruption on Wednesday (31 August), shortly after taking off.
The flight, which departed from Dublin Airport a little after 9am, was forced to turn around and return to the airport due to technical difficulties.
Once grounded, passengers were re-routed to a second aircraft that successfully transported them from Dublin to Kerry, albeit a couple of hours later than originally scheduled.
A spokesperson for Ryanair told JOE:
"This flight from Dublin to Kerry (31 Aug) returned to Dublin Airport shortly after take-off due to a minor technical issue with the aircraft.
"The aircraft landed normally and to minimise disruption to passengers, an alternative aircraft was quickly arranged, which departed safely for Kerry Airport today at 11:04 local.
"Ryanair sincerely apologises to all affected customers."
