Almost 1.8 million passengers travelled through Dublin Airport in September

Almost 1.8 million passengers travelled through Dublin Airport in September, a 1% decline on the same period last year, and the airport’s best monthly performance in percentage terms since October 2008.

Passenger volumes to and from continental Europe fell by 1% with just under 960,000 passengers travelling on these routes last month. UK traffic also recorded a 1% decrease with just over 595,000 passengers travelling in September.

Transatlantic traffic to North America increased by 1% during September with almost 150,000 passengers travelling on this route sector.

Passenger numbers on domestic routes declined by 33% with just over 32,000 passengers taking domestic flights last month.

Other international passenger traffic, principally flights to the Middle East, increased by 28% to just over 25,000 during September.

Almost 14.3 million passengers have travelled through Dublin Airport so far this year, an 11% decline over the same period last year.

However, stripping out the impact of ash cloud disruption, and other one-off factors, the underlying decline in passenger numbers for the first nine months of the year was 8%.

The three months to the end of September was the strongest quarter since the summer of 2008, with passenger numbers declining by 3% during the period.
