Aontu Meath West TD Peadar Toibin has expressed his disappointment over the fact that neither the Minister for Transport; Tourism and Sport or the Minister for Justice and Equality  have engaged in or received correspondence with the management team at Dublin Airport or the Dublin Airport board of directors in relation to flights from northern Italy from January 2020 to date.

 

After receiving a reply to a Dail question on the issue which said neither Minister had done so, Toibin told Meath Live, ‘ It is somewhat disappointing that neither Minister chose to engage with those who have responsibility over the matter.

 

‘Certainly given the fact that it was established to everyone’s satisfaction that the north of Italy had a serious coronavirus problem it is surprising that no meeting took place’.
