Friday 15th February 2013, 4:00PM GMT.
AIRPORT security has been tightened, but no disciplinary action taken after an unlocked aircraft and open perimeter gate triggered an early morning security lock-down, it has been confirmed.
Officials have now concluded an investigation into the incident on Monday 28 January, which caused long delays for hundreds of passengers.
A statement released yesterday said the airport had made a number of changes to airline staff access arrangements and further action was being implemented.
‘The airport has moved to improve the timeliness and content of its information releases immediately following an incident,’ it said.
‘Thankfully, such disruptions are rare but for obvious good reason, our attention must always remain primarily focussed on passenger safety.’
