We wanted to let you know that adverse weather conditions last week resulted in essential maintenance of the South Runway (28L/10R) being curtailed. Outstanding critical works are being rescheduled for up to three nights from Tuesday, November 29 to Thursday, December 1. This will result in the operation of North Runway (28R/10L) on those dates from 11.30pm to 4.30am. If conditions are not suitable, they will be rescheduled to take place as soon as possible thereafter.
As prevailing winds are west/south-westerly, and aircraft must land and take off into the wind, the use of North Runway during these essential works will result in aircraft taking off to the west of Dublin Airport, over areas including St Margaret’s, The Ward and Kilsallaghan, while landings will come in from the east coast over areas including Malahide, Portmarnock and Kinsealy.
Separately, the ongoing review of North Runway’s flying patterns is progressing and we will provide an update as soon as further information is available.
We sincerely apologise for any impact these operations may be having on local residents.
North Runway Team.
