Travel restrictions in Northern Ireland are expected to ease as the Easter weekend arrives.
The Northern Ireland Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DUP) said there were a number of restrictions which will now be lifted, but a number will still remain.
It said: “Restrictions in place will include the introduction of a no-fly list, a requirement for all commercial aircraft to have an on-board radio, a number for the use of drones, and an extension of a curfew from 10am to 8pm.”
The maximum number of flights will be restricted to two daily and two non-daily flights will only be allowed to last one hour.
“On-board radios will be mandatory for aircraft operating in Northern Europe and North Africa.”
We will also be increasing the number of police officers on duty at all airports and airports will be closed to aircraft carrying passengers.
“However, the DPP’s press office said the new restrictions would be relaxed once the Easter holidays begin.
It added: “The DPP will release further information on the changes to the restrictions on the same day as the opening of the week, which is expected to be on Monday, April 10.”
There are restrictions in place which will be lifted.
It’s a good day to be out and about and get some exercise.

The DLP said: “[Restrictive measures] include the requirement for pilots to fly at least two hours without stopping or changing course, and for all air traffic control frequencies to be deactivated.”
Airlines are required to provide 24-hour information about flights in their own information systems to all airlines.”DUP members, however, remain concerned.
In a statement, the party said: The DPP is committed to protecting the security of the Irish people, but the government’s policies have led to an increase in the number and intensity of restrictions and restrictions on all parts of the island.
“It is not right that some members of the public are being subjected to additional restrictions and controls at the same time as the Government continues to push for more powers to be given to the Executive and its police.”
This situation has to change.
All Irish people should be able to travel in peace and security.
This is why we have set up the DUP and are fighting for the Irish Government to do the right thing.””
We call on the Irish government to stop this unnecessary, unnecessary and unlawful restriction on our people.
