Certain suburbs of Dublin may experience a temporary increase in aircraft movements over the next two weeks due to essential work on the main runway at Dublin Airport.

The work, which comprises grass cutting around the runway strip and essential maintenance is vital for the safe operation of the airport.

This work is due to begin tonight Tuesday, July 5 and will continue from 11pm to 4.45am each night until Saturday morning July 16.  No night work will take place on Saturday or Sunday night. 

For operational reasons this work, which is weather dependent, must be carried out at night.

During the maintenance work, aircraft using Dublin Airport will land and take off on the north/east south/west runway known as R16/34. The flightpath used for this runway routes aircraft over locations such as Clonshaugh, Beaumont, Santry, Killester, Clontarf and the Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown area.

Dublin Airport regrets any inconvenience that may be caused by these essential runway works.
