Over 1.7 Million Passengers In October

November 10 2010

More than 1.7 million passengers travelled through Dublin Airport in October, a 1% increase on the same period last year and the first monthly increase in passenger numbers in more than two years.

Passenger volumes to and from continental Europe increased by 4% with almost 880,000 passengers travelling on these routes last month. UK traffic declined by 1% with just over 638,000 passengers travelling between Dublin and British airports during October.

Transatlantic traffic increased by almost 4% with almost 134,000 travelling to and from North America during the period. Passenger numbers on domestic routes fell by 37% in October with just over 32,000 people taking domestic flights last month.

Other international passenger traffic, which is principally flights to the Middle East, increased by almost 26% to almost 27,000 in October.

Just over 16 million passengers used Dublin in the 10 months to the end of October, a 10% decline on the previous year. However, stripping out the impact of ash cloud disruption, and other one-off factors, the underlying decline in passenger numbers for the first 10 months of the year was 7%.
