Record Easter At Dublin Airport

A record Easter weekend is expected at Dublin Airport with almost 340,000 people travelling – a 12% increase on last year.

Over 2,300 flights are expected to arrive and depart during the four days from tomorrow, Good Friday, to Easter Monday.

Friday will be the busiest day of the weekend with just under 100,000 passengers expected to arrive and depart through the airport.

Said airport spokeswoman Siobhan O’Donnell: “The Canary Islands and Spanish coastal resorts are the most popular sunshine destinations this Easter for passengers in search of sunshine.

“March was also a record month and the 36th consecutive month of passenger growth at Dublin Airport.”

Dublin Airport is also preparing for a busy summer season with nine new routes and services due to start in the coming weeks.

More than 5.8 million passengers have travelled through Dublin Airport in the first three months of the year, representing a 5% increase, or an extra 260,000 passengers, compared to the same period in 2016.
