Dublin Airport is launching a new €10 million Community Fund that will support a wide range of local community initiatives.

The Dublin Airport Community Fund will invest €400,000 per year over the next 25 years in local projects focussed on areas such as; environment and sustainability, sports and recreation, social inclusion and community development, health and wellbeing, and culture and heritage.

“Dublin Airport has been supporting projects in local communities for decades and as the airport grows with additional facilities such as the new North Runway, we are expanding our support for those neighbouring communities,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.

“The new Community Fund represents is a very significant expansion of our existing local activities, as we are more than doubling our annual community spend,” Mr Harrison added.
Dublin Airport already delivers huge benefits to the local community as it is the largest employer in Fingal, with 19,200 jobs located directly at the airport or at airport-related businesses, according to Mr Harrison.

“We also depend on many of our neighbouring communities to provide the staff who work at the airport on a daily basis, not just for daa, but also for all of the other businesses that are based here because of the airport. The new Dublin Airport Community Fund will further strengthen those already close bonds between the airport and its neighbours.”

Dublin Airport has supported community initiatives for many years in areas such as sports, education, literacy and the arts. Organisations and activities currently supported include; St Margaret’s GAA Club, Naomh Mearnóg GAA Club, Swords and Malahide Young Musician of the Year competitions and Fingal Libraries’ Battle of the Book reading programme.

The new Community Fund will support local projects in the neighbouring communities around Dublin Airport from Santry south of the airport to Rolestown in the north and from Tyrrelstown on the west to Portmarnock on the east.

The Community Fund will also support up to 10 students per year from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to enable them to attend Dublin City University (DCU) via its Access Programme. “By working with Dublin City University’s Access Programme, the fund will provide scholarships to students that may be marginalised, giving them the life-changing opportunity to access third level education,” Mr Harrison said.

Awards from the Community Fund will be made by an independent Grant Making Panel, chaired by Marian Burns, Director of Human Resources with DCU. Ms Burns was appointed to the role in 2002, and joined the university in 1990.

The grant making panel will also include two representatives from local businesses and two representatives from Dublin Airport.

The fund has a transparent application process for grants, the full details of which are now available on the Dublin Airport website. There will be two calls for funding applications each year - in February and September - and payments will be awarded in April and November.

Organisations can apply for grants under three different headings: minor grants of €5,000 or less to suit smaller initiatives; major grants of €5,000 or over for projects that have medium or long-term benefits and capital grants for the purchase of equipment or the improvement or construction of buildings.

Dublin Airport’s Community Fund will open for applications for the first time on September 1 for a period of six weeks with the first allocation of funds being distributed in November this year.

Applications will be accepted from organisations such as voluntary community groups or clubs, residents associations from local communities, schools/colleges and companies limited by guarantee.

The fund will support community-led projects in the immediate vicinity of Dublin Airport and communities which are located under a flight path. The parameters of the fund – both geographically and in terms of the type of activity that should be supported - were designed following detailed public feedback that was undertaken as part of the consultation process for the new North Runway.

“Our intention is that the Community Fund’s annual spend of €400,000 will reach the neighbouring communities that are most impacted by airport operations,” Mr Harrison said.

A clear step-by-step application guide for the new Dublin Airport Community Fund and application forms can be found at http://www.dublinairport.com/community-fund or via communityfund@daa.ie

Dublin Airport and Enterprise Ireland have launched a competition for firms to research and develop potential new solutions to address the challenges of wildlife activity on the airfield at Dublin Airport.

Through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) open tender initiative, applicants are encouraged to look at the use of smart, low cost and innovative technology that further reduces the risk posed by wildlife on the airfield.

Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said that the airport is committed to providing a safe environment on the airfield for passengers and airline customers as well as those who work at the airport. “The aviation business is dynamic and constantly evolving and we are continually seeking solutions that are specific to our industry challenges. Like other international airports, Dublin Airport already has robust systems in place that continuously monitor wildlife activity around our airfield.

“We are delighted to work with Enterprise Ireland’s SBIR initiative to see whether new technological solutions can assist us in further reducing the potential safety risk posed by birds and small animals on our airfield,” he added.

Commenting on the initiative, Minister of State for Training and Skills, John Halligan said: "I welcome the opportunity to launch this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Dublin Airport Wildlife Challenge which complements the Government’s research, innovation and enterprise agenda. The process is about enabling public sector bodies to connect with innovative ideas and technologies. I am pleased that the SBIR is particularly suited to small and medium sized businesses and I welcome the further opportunities this initiative may open up for this sector".

Julie Sinnamon, CEO, Enterprise Ireland said: “SBIR is an internationally proven mechanism to drive partnerships between SMEs and public bodies. It facilitates SMEs with early stage ideas to access procurement opportunities in the public sector while also driving innovation. This results in solutions to identified problems and positive economic impacts that benefit all. Enterprise Ireland is keen to broaden the SBIR initiative with other public bodies and we are delighted to partner with Dublin Airport on this agenda and look forward to deepening our collaboration in the future”.

Dublin Airport has had a comprehensive Wildlife and Habitat Management Plan in place for decades. The airport uses a number of methods to minimise the risk posed by birds and small animals in the vicinity of the airfield such as, implementing a dedicated grasslands management plan, daily patrols on the airfield from dawn to dusk using a number of bird scaring techniques and employing a consultant ornithologist for expert advice on bird activity.

The invitation to tender document is available on eTenders website, http://www.etenders.gov.ie. An information day to outline details of the project will be held at the airport on July 4 with closing deadline for applicants is August 14.

Dublin Airport is now one of Europe’s leading airports for both direct connectivity and hub connectivity, according to a major new aviation study.

Dublin Airport has entered the top 20 league rankings for both direct connectivity (20th) and hub connectivity (18th) according to ACI Europe’s Airport Industry Connectivity Report 2017.

The report found that Dublin Airport’s hub connectivity has increased by 286% over the past 10 years, making Dublin one of four new entrants to the best hub connectivity rankings alongside Düsseldorf, Warsaw and Berlin Tegel airports. Dublin is one of a number of new secondary hubs which have emerged over the past 10 years, according to ACI.

Dublin Airport’s direct connectivity has also increased rapidly over the past 10 years – growing by 23% since 2007 to catapult Dublin into the European top 20 league. It is one of three new entrants to the top 20 alongside Moscow-Sheremetyevo and Palma de Mallorca.

“Air connectivity is essential for the Irish economy, which is one of the most open economies in the world,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison. “By adding new routes and extra flights on existing services, Dublin Airport is facilitating greater trade, tourism and investment for the benefit of the entire island,” he added.

“Dublin Airport now has much greater direct and hub connectivity than it had before the global downturn, and we’re continuing to expand. Over the past three years alone Dublin Airport has seen 53 new routes and capacity increases on 84 existing services.”

This increased connectivity and growing passenger numbers have a significant direct and indirect impact on the Irish economy, according to Mr Harrison. “Dublin Airport is the biggest economic engine in the State as the most recent economic study shows that it supports or facilitates 117,300 jobs and is worth €8.3 billion to the Irish economy annually.”

Growing Ireland’s connectivity will be a key enabler for the Irish economy, particularly in the current climate, Mr Harrison said. “Dublin Airport’s new Runway North is essential to allow Ireland the freedom to compete globally in a more uncertain post Brexit environment.”

In relation to indirect connectivity, the report found that over the past 10 years the “EU big three” (IAG Group, Lufthansa Group and Air France-KLM) were collectively responsible for almost 34% of the growth in Dublin’s Airport’s indirect connectivity while the “Middle East big three” (Emirates, Etihad and Qatar) were collectively responsible for almost 27% of the growth.

The ACI ranking counts how many direct services an airport has, and also considers the frequency of those services and the quality of the connections that are available. The report found that Amsterdam Schiphol is Europe’s leading airport in terms of direct connectivity while Frankfurt has the best hub connectivity in the world.

Dublin Airport is delighted to welcome Qatar Airways’ new daily service between Dublin and Doha.

To celebrate this special occasion, the airline flew its new generation Airbus 350 aircraft to Dublin for the inaugural flight.

This was the first time an Airbus A350 had operated a scheduled service to Dublin. From tomorrow onwards, Qatar will operate its daily Dublin service with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said he was delighted to welcome Qatar Airways to Dublin. “This new daily service will add increased connectivity to the Middle East and beyond, offering more choice to both business and leisure travellers.”

Qatar’s new service to Doha is one of 11 new routes at Dublin Airport this year. During 2015 and 2016, Dublin Airport welcomed 42 new services and 71 existing services were expanded with either additional flights or larger aircraft.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: The launch of our new service to Dublin is an important milestone for Qatar Airways. The new service will connect the Irish people with more destinations globally and provide them the opportunity to experience our five-star service. We look forward to welcoming our new passengers on board and to connecting them to Doha and beyond.”

More than 370,000 passengers are expected to travel through Dublin Airport this June Bank Holiday weekend, a 6% increase over the same weekend last year.

Over 2,660 flights will arrive and depart this June Bank Holiday, which is expected to be the busiest weekend of the year so far, according to Dublin Airport spokeswoman Siobhán O’Donnell.
“We’re expecting over 90,000 passengers per day over the four days between Friday, June 2 and Monday, June 5. Friday will be the busiest day of the weekend with more than 700 aircraft arriving and departing in a single day,” Ms O’Donnell said.

"As this weekend is set to the busiest of the year so far we strongly advise passengers to prepare for security screening in advance and to go directly to the security screening area once they have checked-in.

“Dublin Airport’s route network is set to expand further over the coming months as five new long-haul and six new short-haul services are being launched this year providing passengers with greater choice and flexibility,” she added.

More than 8.3m passengers have used Dublin Airport in the first four months of the year, which is a 7% increase over last year. This means that Dublin Airport has welcomed almost 528,000 additional passengers during the first four months of the year.
Dublin Airport has the following advice for passengers travelling over the course of this Bank Holiday weekend:

• Passengers are advised to check which terminal their flight is departing from BEFOREleaving home. Aer Lingus, Aer Lingus Regional, Emirates and all the US carriers operate from Terminal 2, while all other airlines operate from Terminal 1.

• Passengers should plan to arrive in the terminal building at least 90 minutes before their flight departure time, irrespective of whether they are checking-in online or at the airport.

• Passengers are strongly advised to go directly to the security screening area once they have checked-in.

• EU Aviation Security regulations concerning liquids are still in place. In this regard, passengers are advised to check the details of these regulations on http://www.dublinairport.com BEFOREsetting out on their journey to the airport.

• Once again passengers are reminded to remove all sharp objects from hand luggage. These objects should be packed into checked-in luggage, in addition, all laptop computers must be removed from their outer casing for security screening.

Dublin Airport will have Customer Care teams on duty across both terminals this Bank Holiday weekend to help passengers with their journey through the airport.

This summer is set to be the busiest ever on record at Dublin Airport. More than 1.3 million seats have been added across the airport’s route network this summer season, representing a 6% increase in capacity over last year.

Dublin Airport has recruited more than 200 extra staff over the past 12 months to cope with growing passenger numbers and will have almost 1,000 security screening staff working on a 24-hour shift basis this summer. A total of 33 security screening lanes located across both terminals will ensure all passengers are cleared through security within 15 minutes, 98% of the time.

To help passengers get through security screening more efficiently, Dublin Airport has the following key tips:

1. EU liquid regulation for hand luggage is that all liquids or gels must be 100ml or under and must be presented separately in a 20cm x 20cm resealable plastic bag.

2. Empty pockets of coins, keys, and phones and place them in the tray provided.

3. Remove outer jacket, belt and shoes.

4. Electronic devices such as laptop, iPad, games must be removed from their cases.

5. Medication, including liquid medication, baby formula and milk are allowed in hand luggage if essential for use during the trip and should be placed in the tray provided.

“Preparation is the key for a smooth and speedy experience through the security screening area,” said Dublin Airport Spokesperson Siobhán O’Donnell. “This summer we are facilitating about 680 aircraft landing and taking off daily, and we have extra staff on hand to help with extra passenger numbers,” she added.

“Our Dublin Airport app is a great travel companion providing information on a range of services as well as real time security screening queue times and processing times through US CBP to help passengers travel through the airport seamlessly,” O’Donnell said.

A total of 11 new routes and services comprising seven short-haul and five long-haul destinations will be launched at the airport this year.

More than 8.3 million passengers have travelled through Dublin Airport in the first four months of this year, which is a 7% increase over the same period last year. Dublin Airport has already welcomed almost 528,000 additional passengers so far this year.

Dublin Airport has direct flights to 185 destinations in 41 countries operated by a total of 47 airlines.

Dublin Airport is delighted to welcome the launch of Delta Air Lines’ new daily service to Boston.

The new service, which will operate from May until October, will complement Delta’s existing year-round services between Dublin and New York-JFK and its summer route from Dublin to Atlanta.

“We are delighted to see Delta’s route network going from strength to strength with a third transatlantic service from Dublin Airport,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.“I have no doubt that this route will be a very popular destination due to the strong cultural and historical links that exist between Ireland and Boston,” he added

The new daily flight will offer further choice and flexibility for leisure and business passengers on both sides of the Atlantic, according to Mr Harrison.

“Delta has been flying to Ireland for more than 20 years and it is now Delta’s fifth largest European market,” said Alex Antilla, Delta’s director Transatlantic Network. “Boston has long-established ties with Ireland so we are proud to make the city more accessible through this new flight.”

Passengers travelling on Delta’s new service to Boston will use US preclearance facilities at Dublin, meaning passengers save time on arrival in the US by completing all the necessary immigration and customs checks prior to departure. The only queue a precleared passenger encounters on arrival in the US is the taxi queue to their final destination.

Delta’s new Boston service will operate as follows:

DL155 departs Dublin at 10.15am, arrives in Boston at 12.40pm

DL154 departs Boston at 9.10pm, arrives in Dublin at 08.30am (next day)

Now in their thirteenth year, the prestigious ACI Europe Best Airport Awards recognise excellence and achievement across a whole range of disciplines including retail, security, operations, facilities, community relations, environmental awareness and customer service.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner at the 27th ACI Europe General Assembly, Congress and Exhibition in Paris on June 13.

The ACI Airport Awards nominations come after another record-breaking year for Dublin Airport. Almost 28 million passengers used Dublin Airport last year and it was also awarded an ACI World Airport Service Quality (ASQ) award for the quality of the customer experience that it provides to its passengers.

Dublin Airport was also named the tenth best airport in the world last year, based on a survey of more than 65,000 passenger reviews from the travel website eDreams. The ranking was based on, and covers overall airport quality, waiting areas, shopping, and restaurants.

Gerry Moore - Well done Dublin! But in Alcock & brown in T1, the only place where people can have a view of the apron, watching family/friends arrive or depart, why oh why do the over zealous bar staff rope off the raised seating area by the window-for cleaning" when it's the area most people want to sit in?

Tara Whelan - Well deserved. Dublin Airport has come such a long way and managed to do so much with limited space.

Stephen Pearson - I was in Newcastle airport recently and it wasn't very clean. Had to clean my own table etc in a cafe which had loads of dirty tables due to only one member of staff on. Also had to clean my seat before I sat in it while waiting for my girlfriend. I need a job and im sure I could do a lot better than that.
