More than 285,000 passengers are expected to travel through Dublin Airport over the course of the August Bank Holiday Weekend, from Friday, August 2 to Monday, August 5, a 7% increase over the same period last year according to the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA).
Over 2,000 flights will arrive and depart during this time including 100 charter flights, which have been added to the normal schedule.
The DAA 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, Etihad Airways, Emirates, 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.
Some airlines advise passengers to arrive earlier than 90 minutes at busier times; passengers should consult their airline’s website before travelling to 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.
