Welcome to this section of our website specifically designed to provide you
with up-to-date information on the proposed new runway at Dublin Airport
This segment will take you through the need, specification, community
involvement and environmental aspects of the new runway amongst others.
Investment in a new runway at Dublin Airport is needed to meet the
ever-increasing demand for travel to and from Ireland. Whilst we are working
hard with our partners in Air Traffic Control and the airlines to maximise our
existing runway capacity, it is clear that demand will exceed supply within the
decade. In that regard the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) submitted a planning
application to Fingal County Council in December 2004 for a new parallel runway,
which will see the airport being able to accommodate over 30 million passengers
per annum. This investment in facilities at the airport is required to
serve the growing demand for air transport in Ireland and to keep Dublin Airport
in step with the fastest-growing airports throughout the world.
