More than 1.7 million passengers used Dublin Airport in May, a 2% decline on the same period last year.
One of the main reasons for the decline was that passenger numbers in May 2011 were boosted by the Europa League Final, which was held in Dublin last year.
Passenger volumes to and from continental Europe declined by 3% with just under 930,000 people travelling to continental European destinations during May.
UK traffic declined by 4% with more than 585,000 passengers travelling to and from Britain during the month.
Transatlantic passenger volumes increased by 2% with almost 150,000 people travelling to and from North America during May. Other international traffic, which principally covers routes to the Middle East and North Africa, increased by 97%, with just over 36,000 passengers travelling on these services.
Domestic traffic declined by 58% with about 5,600 passengers taking domestic flights in May. More than 7 million passengers travelled through Dublin Airport in the first five months of this year, a 1% decline on the same period in 2011.
