Statement By DAA Media Relations Manager
The statement published on DublinAirport.com quoted DAA media relations manager Graeme McQueen as saying, “It’s going to be another busy weekend at Dublin Airport, but the team are ready to welcome the many thousands of passengers set to fly off on sun holidays and city breaks over the coming days. This week’s passenger forecast is no different to recent weeks, with around 100,000 passengers travelling through Dublin Airport every day during the second half of May.
“With our full complement of 800+ security staff now in place, and with a raft of improvements having been made in our two terminals – including the addition of hundreds more seats at departure gates, new family seating areas, exciting new food and drink outlets, and faster free wi-fi speeds – we’re well set up for the busy summer months ahead.
“Our full focus is on ensuring a speedy and enjoyable journey for all passengers through Dublin Airport this summer, building on a stable ten months, which has seen more than 90% of passengers clearing security screening in under 20 minutes. Passengers can look forward to that continuing through the summer months.”
