A TRANSATLANTIC FLIGHT has made an unscheduled emergency landing at Dublin Airport this afternoon.
The US Airways flight 799, from Amsterdam to Philadelphia, suffered an unspecified technical fault shortly after clearing Irish airspace on its route to the United States.
Comments broadcast on air traffic control radio suggested that a problem had emerged with technical instrumentation in the cockpit.
Immediate ground assistance was not required for the aircraft upon its arrival.
Scheduled arrivals and departures were expected to be pushed back for a few minutes due to the unscheduled arrival on the runway.
