Dublin Airport says security queues are currently staying below 30 minutes, as they prepare for an extremely busy Easter holiday weekend.
However, Airport authorities are still advising passengers to arrive 3 and a half hours ahead of their flight, to make allowances for delays.
A shortage of trained security staff has led to excessive delays, with crews struggling to cope with the speedy return of international travel after the Covid pandemic.
Graham McQueen from the DAA has this advice for passengers:
"Security times are generally staying below 30 minutes, that's what we want. We don't want it going any higher. Be prepared for things to take a little bit longer still. Be patient, and work with the team. We've lots of staff around. You can't miss them, they're wearing pink hi-vis jackets this weekend".
