6 Handy Travel Tips This Christmas Season

December 20 2012

The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has the following 6 key tips for passengers travelling this Christmas season:
 
1. PASSENGERS SHOULD CHECK WHICH TERMINAL THEY ARE DEPARTING FROM
Passengers are advised to check which terminal their flight departs from before coming to the airport.   Aer Lingus, Etihad Airways, Emirates and ALL American carriers operate from Terminal 2 while all other airlines operate from Terminal 1. (NB Some Aer Lingus Regional services operate from T1)

2.GET TO KNOW THE EU AVIATION SECURITY REGULATIONS
Passengers should familiarise themselves with the EU Aviation Security regulations before travelling to the airport.  Passengers are reminded that they cannot bring bottles/perfume gift sets/ specially packed bottles of wine or spirits etc. in hand luggage in containers measuring more than 100mls. Detailed advice is available on www.dublinairport.com
 
3. REMOVE ALL SHARP OBJECTS FROM HAND LUGGAGE
Passengers are also reminded not to carry sharp objects in their hand-luggage, such as, scissors, nail files, blades, cork screws, cutlery or other sharp objects of any description.   These objects should be packed into luggage, which will then be checked-in to the aircraft baggage hold.  Christmas Crackers may be brought through the passenger security screening area provided the novelty gifts inside are not sharp/prohibited items.

4. DON'T WRAP THAT PRESENT
If you are planning to bring Christmas gifts by air this festive season Dublin Airport is asking passengers not to gift wrap presents as you may be asked to open them by security officials.
 
5. SPECIAL ADVICE FOR PASSENGERS USING WEB CHECK-IN
Passengers using web check-in should give themselves sufficient time to arrive at the airport in order to clear security screening so that they arrive at their boarding gate on time.

6. ROAD TRAFFIC
Finally, passengers travelling this Christmas season are also advised to allow themselves extra time to get to the airport in the event of road congestion to ensure they comply with check-in and airport security regulations.
