DAA Says It Is Seeing Performance Improvement At Dublin Airport

Dublin and Cork airports operator DAA has reported an improvement in how long it is taking passengers to get through security screening at Dublin Airport, according to a statement published on the airport's website.

Statement By Dublin Airport Managing Director

According to the statement published on, Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said at a Joint Oireachtas Transport Committee hearing that as of 26 July, which was the airport's busiest month in three years, over 95% of passengers had gotten through security in less than three quarters of an hour, while over 85% of passengers queued for a half an hour or less.

Strong June And Passenger Advice

The airport's performance last month built on a strong performance in June, during which the airport handled 2.8 million passengers, with approximately 90% of passengers passing through security in three quarters of an hour or less, according to the statement published on, which added the airport is continuing to advise passengers to arrive 2.5 hours before a short-haul flight and 3.5 hours before a long-haul flight, and to allow an additional hour if they are checking in luggage.
