A dedicated 24-7 air ambulance service is to operate from Dublin Airport from tomorrow.
AeroMedevac, which has a contract to provide services to Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Crumlin, is to move its medically-equipped Cessna to Dublin Airport from tomorrow morning.
It had previously operated from Weston airport - but was restricted to flying only in daylight hours.
The announcement comes just weeks after the controversy surrounding the botched attempts to fly a Leitrim teenager to the UK in time for a liver transplant.
Meadbh McGivern is now back on the waiting list for a new organ.
However a spokesperson for AeroMedevac says negotiations with the Dublin Airport Authority had been ongoing for some time.
