Dublin airport sees 2% passenger gain
DAA rebated €1.5 million in airport charges to 25 airlines that grew business at Dublin last year.
Passenger numbers at Dublin Airport increased by two per cent last year to 19.1 million, marking its second consecutive year of traffic growth.
International passengers – both incoming and outgoing – increased by 420,000. Terminal 1 handled 10.3 million passengers while almost 8.8 million passengers used Terminal 2.
The growth was underpinned by a major expansion in long-haul traffic, which was up 16 per cent, while short-haul traffic increased by one per cent during the year.
