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.
