Incentive Schemes

Dublin GROWTH Incentive Scheme 2011-2013

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.

The Dublin GROWTH Incentive Scheme has been amended and improved, and now 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:
• The scheme will run for three years from 2011 to 2013
• When traffic at a Dublin Airport exceeds the level of traffic that was recorded during the previous year, airlines will be rebated retrospectively, based on their contribution to the overall growth at the airport
• The threshold for 2011 will be 18.431m at Dublin Airport, which is the actual traffic recorded in 2010
• The level of traffic to be exceeded at Dublin Airport in order for a Dublin GROWTH Incentive rebate to be paid in 2012 and 2013 will be the traffic recorded at Dublin Airport during 2011 and 2012 respectively
• The Dublin GROWTH Incentive rebate will be available to all passenger airlines and will be paid to airlines that grow traffic over the previous year. The rebate will be distributed based on each airline’s proportion of the overall incremental passengers recorded at the airport
• The total Dublin GROWTH Incentive payment will be capped at the level of growth at Dublin Airport as a whole
• In the event of an airline receiving route or other incentive support, the airline will receive the benefit of the higher value scheme. Airlines will not be eligible to receive both route support and a GROWTH Incentive rebate.

Example: If 2011 total annual traffic exceeds 18.4 million passengers at Dublin Airport, DAA will rebate all associated Passenger Services Charges for departing passengers in excess of that amount. The rebate will be paid to those airlines demonstrating growth at Dublin Airport at 2011. The rebate payment would be made in early 2012.

• 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
• Growth that has been generated as solely a result of an airline switching capacity between DAA airports, with no net benefit to DAA, will be excluded from any GROWTH Incentive rebate under this scheme.

[1] In Dublin Airport this amounts to €11.50 per departing passenger using a contact stand and €6.30 per departing passenger utilising a remote stand.
