March 28 2013
This Easter Bank Holiday weekend will see more than 210,000 passengers travel through Dublin Airport from Friday, March 29 to Monday, April 1, 2013. Passenger numbers over this Easter weekend are level when compared to last year.
Over 1,700 flights will arrive and depart over the course of the bank holiday weekend including 30 charter flights. Gran Canaria, Turkey and Portugal are popular destinations for those in search of sun this Easter weekend.
DAA has this advice for passengers travelling over the weekend:
• Passengers are advised to check which terminal their flight is departing from BEFORE leaving home. Aer Lingus, Etihad Airways, Emirates, Delta Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways operate from Terminal 2 while all other airlines operate from Terminal 1.
• Passengers are advised to be in the terminal building at least 90 minutes before their flight departure time irrespective of whether they are checking in at the airport or have checked in online. A further 30 minutes should be factored in if passengers are using one of the long-term car parks.
• Passengers are also advised to prepare for security screening in advance by removing laptops from cases, belts, outer jackets, umbrellas and sharp objects from hand luggage. This will avoid unnecessary delays at the passenger security screening area. Information regarding EU Aviation Security regulations concerning liquids is available on www.dublinairport.com and passengers are advised to familiarise themselves with these BEFORE setting out on their journey to the airport.
Dublin Airport will have Customer Care teams on duty across both terminals this bank holiday weekend; they are there to assist passengers with their journey through the airport.
