A joint investigation will be run to uncover the facts behind the diversion of a Ryanair flight from Paris to Tenerife following a technical issue.
On Tuesday, the Irish and Spanish aviation authorities said that they will jointly investigate the diversion to Madrid of the flight after the decision was taken during the meeting of air safety experts in Dublin, which heard a series of comments from Spanish authorities upon the number of incidents occurring in Spanish airspace including Europe's largest budget airline too.
The news is primarily talking about the emergency landings that were made by three Ryanair planes in Valencia on July 26 after they approached with the minimum required fuel but Ryanair said that the landings were forced due to the bad weather conditions. Spanish authorities have started investigating the cases.
Also the authorities are investigating the incident of diversion of a Ryanair flight, which later landed at Barcelona's El Prat airport after a possible engine fault was detected by the experts.
"The Irish authorities gave an assurance of the Irish Aviation Authority's rigorous oversight of Ryanair's operations and on their satisfaction with Ryanair's safety standards which are on a par with the safest airlines in Europe", the Irish department of transport said in a statement after the meeting.
