IALPA to hold mass outdoor meeting in Dublin today.


Airline pilots are calling for the government to introduce rapid antigen testing immediately to help the sector recover.

IALPA will hold a mass outdoor meeting in Dublin today to discuss the damage the industry has faced over the past year.

The group will then travel to Government buildings and submit a plan to Ministers which they believe shows a roadmap for the safe return of international travel.

Pilots say antigen testing has been "incredibly effective" at detecting infectious cases of Covid-19.
