It's set to be the busiest weekend at Dublin Airport since before the pandemic.

More than 51,000 passengers are jetting off today as schools close for the summer.

A spokesperson for the airport says they've had a busy first wave of departures but most people are passing through security in under half an hour.

The daa says the week ahead is set to remain busy as many people head off on their holidays.

Passengers are again being asked to arrive 2.5 hours before a short-haul flight and 3.5 hours before a long-haul departure, with up to an hour extra if checking a bag in.

Meanwhile, residents in nearby Swords have been complaining of people avoiding charges at the airport by parking in local housing estates.

Councillor Joe Newman says it's an ongoing problem;

"Parking has been an issue for a number of years with people parking in estates in Swords and this is probably with the parking charges at the airport and the incoming toll booth situation up there with charging people for dropping passengers off is certainly not helping."
