DUBLIN, Ireland - The government has agreed to Transport Minister Eamon Ryan's request for the army to be on standby to assist with security at Dublin Airport.

Passengers have reported serious security issues recently, with many missing flights due to the delays.

The daa, which operates the airport, stated that it is satisfied with the current measures.

However, it is concerned about the possibility of a Covid-19 surge among its employees and has requested that the government implement contingency planning.

Members of the Defence Forces will receive basic training and will be able to assist the daa when needed.

The measure is only in place for the busy summer season and will end in August when the daa expects to have more staff trained and ready to go.
