Dublin Airport is pleased to announce the opening of North Runway on August 24 2022. Provision for a parallel runway system has featured in Dublin Airport’s plans since the 1960s, and those plans have now come to fruition with the successful delivery of the largest infrastructure project in the country.
North Runway will help provide the operational flexibility required by Dublin Airport to enable the regrowth and further development of international connectivity that will benefit tourism and investment in Fingal and Ireland as a whole.
North Runway’s first flight is planned to take place between 11.30am and 12.30pm on August 24, weather and operating conditions permitting. This will be one of the scheduled departures in that timeframe and will be the only flight on North Runway that day. The flight will be live-streamed on Dublin Airport’s YouTube channel at Dublin Airport - YouTube (you may need to refresh the page during your viewing session).
From August 25, North Runway will initially operate between 9am and 1pm. Following a short period of operational integration, it will increase operation from 7am to 1pm. The hours of operation will subsequently extend from 7am to 6pm, and this initial phase of operations will be kept under review.
