The DAA is pleased
to announce an enhanced GROWTH Incentive Scheme which will operate at
each of the three DAA airports. This initiative will operate in
conjunction with previously announced New Route Incentives and is aimed
at further stimulating passenger growth at Dublin Airport.

offers a full rebate of Passenger Service Charges for traffic growth
over a three year period. A further enhancement is the reduction in the
initial threshold to the actual traffic level recorded in 2010.
Outline of the Dublin GROWTH Incentive Schemes 2011-2013:

• In the event of an airline receiving route or other incentive support,
the airline will receive the benefit of the higher value scheme.

• The Dublin GROWTH Incentive Scheme will apply to all commercial terminal traffic.
• Operators will continue to be invoiced at the standard applicable airport charge levels
