Three new Fast Track kiosks will be rolled out across both terminals at Dublin Airport.
The Fast Track Pass system uses cashless technology developed by Irish fintech company Facilipay to allow passengers to purchase tickets via self-service kiosks, which facilitates them to bypass security queues.
The system, launched in partenrship with AIB Merchant Services on behalf of Dublin Airport operator DAA, is available online as well as at the airport concourse, and it also allows passengers to purchase lounge passes for access to the airport's private lounges and business centres.

Facilipay managing director Barry Burren stated, "At Facilipay, we are driven by a desire to provide innovative digital solutions that enable businesses and organisations to streamline their existing payment channels and create an enhanced experience for their customers. Working with the DAA has allowed us to demonstrate the numerous benefits associated with integrated payment systems – for both the Airport itself, and the thousands of passengers who travel through it each day.
"Through implementing the Fast Track Pass payment solution, departing passengers have been able to optimise their travel experience, by by-passing long queues - allowing them to travel safely through the airport, at a time when this is of paramount importance to many.
"Consumer enthusiasm for the service is evident, and we look forward to the solution being further expanded in the months ahead. Our aim is to provide innovative payment solutions that help businesses shape the way they accept payments while generating additional revenue streams at the same time, and the Fast Track Pass and Lounge Pass kiosks serve as a magnificent example of this."
