“Once again Dublin Airport is participating in the Global Greening,” said daa spokesperson Siobhán O’Donnell. “This is our fourth year to green the airport and we’re lighting up more locations around the airport campus to bring the St. Patrick’s Day festival to life.”
This is also a big sporting week and 15 flights have been added to the schedule for the thousands of punters travelling to and from the Cheltenham Racing Festival..
The airport is also looking forward to welcoming rugby fans arriving for the Ireland-England Six Nations match on Saturday.
