Dublin Airport is operated by the DAA

Dublin Airport’s car parks are now fully booked out for the June Bank Holiday weekend as 450,000 passengers are set to pass through the airport.

Passengers are being advised that Dublin Airport’s car parks are sold out for this weekend, the airport’s operator daa said.

Those without an existing booking are advised to travel to the airport via an alternate mode such as bus or taxi. Spaces will be available in the short-term car parks for people dropping off and picking up passengers.

Sarah Ryan, Director of Communications at daa said: “It’s going to be another busy weekend at Dublin Airport and the team are ready to welcome the many thousands of passengers set to arrive and depart this weekend.

“The peak tourism season is now upon us and our doors are set to welcome tens of thousands of tourists to Ireland from all over the world this weekend.”

The four day period between Friday and Monday will see 240,000 passengers departing from Dublin Airport, with 210,000 passengers arriving.

The busiest day this weekend will be Sunday, June 2, when around 117,000 passengers are expected to travel through Dublin Airport.

Passengers are advised to arrive at their terminal two hours in advance of a short-haul flight and three hours before a long-haul flight.

To help prepare for the security screening process, passengers are also being advised to visit the security page on the Dublin Airport website in advance of travelling to the airport.

Ms Ryan stressed that passengers can speed up their journey through the airport by preparing in advance for security screening.

“While many passengers will get to go through one of the new C3 scanners that we’re rolling out in both terminals, the rules around liquids remain the same, meaning all liquids should be under 100ml and enclosed in a sealed clear bag no bigger than 20cm x 20cm,” she said.

“Passengers should also be prepared to take hoodies and baggy jumpers off at security screening, as well as any boots or footwear which extends above the ankle. By preparing smartly in advance, passengers can avoid needless delays,” she said.
