Ground Handlers

daa is responsible for managing the operation of Dublin Airport and for the provision of infrastructure to enable airlines and handling agents to operate efficiently and effectively.

Some airlines provide their own ground handling services. For example, Aer Lingus and Ryanair both provide Passenger Handling and Baggage Handling services for their passengers.

All ground handling companies are licensed by the Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR) which is independent of daa.

The full contact details for self handlers and third party ground handling companies at Dublin Airport can be accessed on the CAR website or by contacting
