Dublin Airport Traffic Recovery Support Scheme

The COVID-19 pandemic has decimated passenger traffic across all European airports. A collective opportunity now exists to rebuild passenger traffic from Summer 2021 onwards. Dublin Airport is seeking to assist the recovery of passenger traffic through the implementation of a Traffic Recovery Incentive Scheme (TRSS) (the “Scheme”).The objective of this Scheme is to secure accelerated traffic restoration from Summer 2021 onwards. The intention is to discount passenger traffic over the thresholds of similar activity prior to COVID-19. The Scheme will commence when all COVID-19 travel restrictions are no longer in place.
