Dublin Airport is urging passengers not to arrive excessively early for their flight as the busy Easter period kicks in.

More than 500,000 people are set to travel in and out of the airport between now and Monday as the airport's operator continues to deal with staff shortages.

Passengers are advised to arrive up to 3.5 hours before both short and long haul flights. However, morning travelers that are due to fly from 8.30am onwards are being asked not to arrive into the terminals before 5am.

The daa says people coming earlier than needed has increased pressure at busy periods in recent days and weeks.

To help get passengers through security, security in Terminal 1 is open on a 24/7 basis, while security in Terminal 2 is open from 4 am each day.

Dublin Airport is currently in the process of hiring almost 300 new security screening staff. It says more than 500 candidates, from a pool of more than 4,500 applications, having been invited for an interview over the past two weeks.

A Taskforce, consisting of more than 600 daa office staff, is also being deployed in the terminals to provide additional support and customer service to passengers.
