‘Full state of emergency’ declared at Dublin Airport after reports of smoke on planes – The Irish Times

A “full state of emergency” was declared at Dublin Airport on Sunday afternoon after smoke was reported coming from a plane, airport operator DAA said.

A spokesman said a state of emergency was declared after a private plane aborted takeoff due to reports of smoke in the cockpit.

There were three crew members on board the plane who were evacuated, he added.

“Dublin Airport emergency services responded and following the evacuation of the crew, the aircraft was towed under escort to the general aviation area of ​​the airport,” the spokesman added.
