The statement published on DublinAirport.com quoted Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison as saying, "Passing through the 100 million passenger level is a significant milestone for Terminal 2 and highlights the value of investing in major infrastructure projects that will deliver tangible long-term benefits for passengers. There were some who believed that Terminal 2 would be a 'white elephant' when it was built, but in just 12 years it has already welcomed more than 100 million passengers.

"The advent of T2 and its US preclearance facility has helped to deliver a huge expansion in transatlantic traffic at Dublin Airport over the past eight years. We have worked closely with our airline partners to grow North American connectivity and to build a substantial transfer business."
