‘Back-up’ air traffic control centre under construction

11/06/2015

The back-up facility is being built adjacent to the Irish Aviation Authority’s (IAA) existing North Atlantic Communications Centre in Ballygirreen near Newmarket on Fergus.

The centre will act as a back-up to the IAA’s Shannon Centre at Ballycasey near Shannon Airport where up to 90% of all transatlantic air traffic that transits Irish-controlled airspace is managed.
