Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
51. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the number of meetings that have taken place since 1 August 2020 with the Dublin Airport Authority on the provision of an airport testing regime; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [29775/20]
I had an informal discussion with Dalton Philips, CEO of daa on 7 October, which included consideration of international travel.
My colleague Minister of State Hildegarde Naughton met with daa on the 23 September, which included a presentation on the daa proposal for airport testing.
Further to these, there have been numerous meetings between officials of this Department, daa and the Health Authorities and there is ongoing regular contact between all relevant parties on this issue.
