Destination Ireland

Destination Ireland

Dublin Airport has played a critical part in connecting Ireland to the world and has welcomed visitors from all over the globe to the entire island of Ireland.

Overall passenger numbers at Dublin Airport increased by 4% to 32.9 million last year. About 30.7 million people started and ended their journey at Dublin Airport, while a further 2.2 million passengers used the airport as a connecting hub.

Comparatively Ireland is in a strong place economically. The European commission forecast Ireland’s GDP to reduce by 2.3% in 2020, while the EU average is to reduce by 7.4%. Ireland is set for a return to growth in 2021 with a 2.9% increase in GDP forecast.

We will continue to position Dublin Airport as the airport for the island of Ireland protecting and strengthening connectivity, promoting it as a key gateway to North America with its unique US CBP offering.

Our current focus is on working closely with our existing airline partners to maintain and build services and work with new airlines to attract services to new destinations in a post COVID19 environment. 

Our vision is to be airport industry leaders. Our purpose is to connect Ireland with the world.
