Dublin Airport owner DAA has applied to Fingal County Council for planning permission for a major revamp of Dublin Airport's Terminal 1.
The DAA plans to replace the terminal's core façade and roof with a new modern, energy efficient structure that will completely transform the external appearance of Terminal 1 and give it a new visual identity.
Dublin Airport Managing Director Statement
Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison stated, "These works are part of an overall programme to ensure that T1 can continue to successfully serve Ireland for many decades to come.
"While passenger traffic has been hit by the impact of COVID-19, as custodians of Dublin Airport on behalf of the state, DAA must always take a prudent long-term view in relation to managing the facility. As certain elements of T1 are approaching the end of their life, it makes sense to seek planning permission now for these works, which will be carried out over the coming years."
As yet, no specific date has been set for these upgrade works to take place.
