Over 540,000 passengers are set to pass through Dublin Airport as management there plans for its busiest ever August Bank Holiday.

Passenger numbers are up six per cent the same weekend last year, with 2,904 flights on the roster.

The Dublin Airport Authority says it wants anyone travelling go straight to security after checking in.

It says people need to have their belongings in order ahead of time to avoid causing delays -- and come at least 90 minutes before their flight.

“The addition of 24 new services to our route network this year, coupled with extra frequencies on 14 existing routes has contributed to the increase in passenger numbers,” Dublin Airport Chief Communications Officer, Paul O’Kane said

“Large numbers are expected to travel through the airport this weekend, so we are advising passengers to go directly to security screening once they have checked-in," he said.
