Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary has publicly slammed Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) for its failure to pass a security audit.
Dublin Airport (DUB) failed two security audits. On one of them, they missed an estimated 45 percent of test weapons and explosives sent through X-Ray machines.
O’Leary is demanding a “full and open explanation” of the failures.
“The Department and the DAA are covering this up today, in all of their statements all they say is that passengers at Dublin airport won’t have any significant impact and that’s correct, the impact will be felt on passengers arriving at other airports.” he said
“Every flight coming out of Dublin until this matter is resolved will have the same lack of security as a flight coming out of Afghanistan or Somalia”.
The DAA maintains the audit would not have a ‘significant impact on passengers in Dublin’.
The DAA said the issues could take up to 2 months to address and rectify.
