Almost one third of a million passengers will pass through Dublin Airport over the St. Patrick’s Bank Holiday Weekend.
The airport is expecting more than 323,000 passengers to arrive and depart from Friday 16 to Monday March 19, which is a 3% increase compared to last year.
Passengers will be arriving for the St Patrick’s Festival celebrations, and travelling to and from the Six Nations rugby game in Twickenham.
A variety of musical entertainment is scheduled for passengers flying in for St. Patrick’s Day, with singing from Portmarnock Community School students, Mary Queen of Ireland National School and the Home Farm Monday Club Choir.
Both terminals have been festooned with decorations to celebrate Ireland’s national day, and the airport is again taking part in the Global Greening initiative.
External Communications Manager, Siobhan O’Donnell said that “Ten separate areas around the airport campus are going green, including Terminal 1 and 2 and also the airport’s iconic original 1940s passenger terminal.”
She added: “This is our fifth year to participate in the Global Greening and we’re greening even more locations around the airport campus this year to bring the St. Patrick’s Festival to life.”
