Security investigation at Dublin airport after passenger boards plane with knife
An investigation was launched by security officials at Dublin airport after a passenger boarded an aircraft with a knife.
The passenger, who was flying with the Germanwings airline, informed staff that he had accidentally carried the blade on board in his laptop bag, last week.
A spokeswoman from Dublin Airport told the Irish Independent that it was a one-off incident and an "inadvertent error".
It is not known how the man carried it through the extensive checks unnoticed.
Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) said it has a policy not to not comment in detail on security matters.
