Advice for Travellers Using Dublin Airport Over Easter

Almost 340,000 passengers are expected to travel through Dublin Airport this Easter Bank Holiday Weekend from tomorrow, Friday April 14 until Monday, April 17 representing a 12 per cent increase compared to last Easter.

"Over 2,300 flights are expected to arrive and depart this Easter Bank Holiday weekend," said Dublin Airport spokesperson 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,” she added

Good Friday is expected to be the busiest day of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend with just under 100,000 passengers expected to arrive and depart through the airport.

Dublin Airport is also preparing for a busy summer season with nine new routes/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 five per cent increase, or an extra 260,000 passengers, compared to the same period last year.

Dublin Airport has the following advice for passengers travelling over the weekend:

  • Passengers are advised to check which terminal their flight is departing from BEFORE leaving home. Aer Lingus, Emirates and all US carriers operate from Terminal 2, while all other airlines operate from Terminal 1
  • Passengers are advised to be in the terminal building at least 90 minutes before their flight departure time irrespective of whether they are checking in at the airport or have checked in on-line. A further 30 minutes should be factored in if passengers are using one of the long-term car parks. Passengers are also advised to prepare for security screening in advance by removing laptops from cases, belts, outer jackets, umbrellas and sharp objects from hand luggage. This will avoid unnecessary delays at the passenger security screening area.
  • Information regarding EU Aviation Security regulations concerning liquids is available on the airport’s website and passengers are advised to familiarise themselves with these BEFORE setting out on their journey to the airport

  • Dublin Airport’s app provides information on a range of services through smart phone and hand held devices. Real time flight information, security queue times and processing times through US CBP is there to help passengers travel through the airport seamlessly
  • Dublin Airport will have Customer Care teams on duty across both terminals this Bank Holiday Weekend; they are there to assist passengers with their journey through the airport.
