More than 220,000 passengers are expected to travel through Dublin Airport over the course of the May Bank Holiday weekend from Friday 3rd to Monday 6th May, 2013, slightly up over the same bank holiday weekend last year according to the Dublin Airport Authority.
Almost 1,500 flights will arrive and depart during this time as the Summer holiday season begins in earnest.
So far this year five new routes/services have commenced at Dublin Airport with three more scheduled in the coming months. American Airlines will commence a seven times per week, year round service to New York in June, while City Jet will start flights to Brest once a week from June and Ryanair will fly year round, three times per week to Bremen in September.
Over 3.9m passengers have used Dublin Airport in the first three months of the year, a 4% increase over the same quarter last year.
The Dublin Airport Authority has the following advice for passengers travelling over the course of this holiday weekend:
• Passengers are advised to check which terminal their flight is departing from BEFORE leaving home. Aer Lingus, Aer Lingus Regional, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, American Airlines and US Airways operate from Terminal 2 while all other airlines operate from Terminal 1.
• Passengers should plan to arrive in the terminal building at least 90 minutes before their flight departure time irrespective of whether they are checking in on the web or at the airport.
• EU Aviation Security regulations concerning liquids are still in place. In this regard passengers are advised to check the details of these regulations on www.dublinairport.com BEFORE setting out on their journey to the airport.
• Once again passengers are reminded to remove all sharp objects from hand luggage. These objects should be packed into checked in luggage, in addition, all laptop computers must be removed from their outer casing for security screening.
Dublin Airport will have Customer Care teams on duty across both terminals this bank holiday weekend to help passengers with their journey through the airport.
