Economic decline but airport growth

Issue 2 2012  •  29 March 2012  •  Vincent Harrison, Director of Strategy at the Dublin Airport Authority

Traffic at Dublin Airport Authority’s three Irish airports returned to overall growth last year, as a jump in inbound travellers more than offset continued weakness in outgoing trips. More than 22.7 million passengers used Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports during 2011, an increase of one per cent. Dublin Airport was DAA’s best performer last year with passenger traffic increasing by two per cent to 18.7 million passengers. Excluding domestic air travel within the Irish Republic, which has declined due to domestic economic factors and a much improved road network, international passenger numbers were up two per cent across the group and by three per cent at Dublin. Economic conditions remain the main driver of air travel and as the Irish economy contracted from 2008 passenger numbers declined, just as they had enjoyed double digit growth during the period of economic expansion. Dublin Airport’s traffic, for example, is still almost 40 per cent higher than it was in the year 2000, which equates to an extra five million passengers over the past 11 years, despite the recent slowdown.

Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2 was officially opened by the Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland, Brian Cowen on November 19, 2010, to broad acclaim. The new facility, the largest public building ever constructed in Ireland, represents the centrepiece of the Dublin Airport Authority’s (DAA) €1.2 billion investment programme at the airport over the past five years. This programme incorporated more than 120 separate projects to a minimum value of €5 million and delivered new, expanded or upgraded facilities across the airfield, terminal buildings and landside campus. Amongst its larger projects were a new boarding gate facility, Pier D (2007); over 80 acres of aircraft parking zones, taxiways and contact stands (2008) and an extension to the existing passenger terminal (2009).
