Dublin Airport reaches record number of Northern Ireland passengers

By John Mulgrew

A record 1.2 million journerys were taken by Northern Ireland residents through Dublin Airport last year, new figures have shown.

That's an increase of 37% on the previous.

The 1.2 million counts journeys both leaving, and returning through Dublin Airport.

The increase in passengers from Northern Ireland choosing to use Dublin Airport was due in part to a "further expanded route network", it said.

Dublin Airport’s chief communications officer Paul O’Kane, said: "Passengers from Northern Ireland love the choice, convenience and value that Dublin Airport offers with its extensive long-haul and short-haul route network and high frequency connections to a huge number of destinations.

"Our surveys also show that Northern Ireland passengers are impressed with the quality of the passenger experience and the facilities at Dublin Airport,” Mr O’Kane added.
