Published on : Thursday, October 13, 2016

dublinDublin was ranked as the fastest-growing large European airport during August. It saw a rise of about 9 percent in passenger number according to new data from Airports Council International (ACI).


In the eight months to the end of August, it handled 18.9 million passengers which are almost 12 percent more than that in the corresponding period in 2015.


This year, it is prepared to handle 27 million passengers and which can even approach 28 million. Last year between September and December, Dublin Airport handled over 8.2 million passengers. Given that, corresponding figures for that period this year are almost certain to be higher, that will see the airport’s full-year tally easily top the 27 million mark. Last year, it handled 25 million.


ACI Europe revealed the figures which showed Europe’s large airports which handle over 25 million passengers a year, and Dublin is definitely one of the fastest-growing option. Following it are other airports such as Amsterdam’s Schiphol, Barcelona, Copenhagen and London Gatwick.


The average pace of growth across European airports during August was 2 percent. ACI said that airports in the core mainland European economies of France and Germany barely grew or even declined because of terrorism threats taking a toll on demand.


Growth at UK airports remained more than the EU average, at 5 per cent.

Dublin’s performance in August ranked it the seventeenth-biggest airport in Europe, with London Heathrow remaining the biggest which handled 7.3 million passengers in August.
