Dublin Airport had its busiest ever year with a record 25 million passengers passing through its doors in 2015.

Numbers increased by 15 per cent in the period – 3.3 million people – and airport chiefs attribute the upsurge to 22 new routes and extra capacity on almost 40 existing services.

As a result of the growth, the daa is now in the process of hiring around 350 staff in areas such as security, customer service and asset management.
