Share this article


Management at Dublin Airport are rubbishing a suggestion that a new terminal is needed in the near future.

A report to be published by the Department of Tourism is expected to call for work to begin on a third terminal at the airport.

Paul O'Kane from the DAA doesn't believe it's needed at the moment, but says other improvements are ongoing.

"People often get confused about what a terminal is. It if effectively a new check-in and baggage area".

He said they are currently not needed, but work is continuing to create more boarding gates.

"What Dublin Airport requires is a new runway, aircraft parking stands, boarding gates and other facilities", the DAA said in a statement.

The DAA has also called for strict rules around the opening of a new runway to be relaxed so that early morning flights are not restricted.

The statement continued "We need to get on and build what our airline customers want to help them grow their business – and none of them have told us that they need a new terminal".

"A third terminal will be needed at Dublin Airport further into the future and DAA is happy to continue to debate questions such as its potential location and possible ownership models", a spokesperson said.
