Bloat[edit]

This article is fairly bloated! 87.210.35.24 (talk) 12:25, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

$---- Anyone agree that the following bit might need to be rewritten. It sounds like it was written by Martin Cullen himself - perhaps it was? While I agree with many of the sentiments, a Wikipedia article shouldn't sound as if it has been lifted from a press release.

From there, 'Metro North' will continue to the Airport and onwards to the burgeoning commuter town of Swords, which has many business links with the airport and where thousands of workers at the airport choose to live. There will also be a number of 'Park & Ride' stops along the route.

Although Dublin will benefit tremendously from an airport rail link, 'Metro North' is designed to be much more. It will be a major addition to Dublin's public transport infrastructure and will provide many travel possibilities, whether they are to include the airport or not.

Together with the proposed extensions to the Luas Green and Red tram lines, the metro to Dublin Airport will connect seamlessly with Dublin's bus and rail termini giving access to all major modes of transportation in and from the city: Dublin Bus's vast bus network, Bus Éireann's nationwide bus network, Luas light rail, DART electrified overground railway, 'Arrow' outer suburban rail services, as well as Irish Rail's inter-city rail services to Rosslare, Waterford, Cork, Tralee, Limerick, Galway, Westport, Ballina, and Sligo, and the high-speed cross-border 'Enterprise' service to Belfast.

The line will bring huge social and cultural benefits to the city. Journey time between the airport and St Stephen's Green will be 17 minutes (or 18 minutes if a stop at Parnell Square is included).



'there has been a train platform and tunnels built under the main terminal since the 1960's( as shown on 1961 Ordinace survey map of dublin airport'

- The Project Director of Metro North, Rory O'Connor from the RPA, has stated that there is no truth in the above statement concerning an underground station in Dublin Airport. Please verify the Ordnance Survey remark please.

- MB

There's no train platform or station under the main terminal that was built in the late 60s early 70s. There's a service basement at grade -1 and that's it. The main terminal wasn't built in 1961 so it's difficult to see how it could have been on an OS map in that year ..... The extension to the terminal built in 1999 does have a double height basement - it was never for trains/underground/metro and is now used for check in (Area 14). The airside basement at this level (-2) is used for baggage handling. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 6920 (talkcontribs) 18:51, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Ground Transport[edit]

A anaon put the following in the section on ground transport, "despite the fact that there has been a train platform and tunnels built under the main terminal since the 1960's( as shown on 1961 Ordinace survey map of dublin airport)", i have since marked it as fact, as i can not confirm it my slef, and it would be nice to have some one else verify that this is the case. Also it would kind of be misleading, while if it did have provisions for train service it sill needs a line to be sent to the airport, and currently that is not one that i would coniderable as useable w/o it being refirbished. Also just becuse it is on the map does not mean it was built nor does it mean that they were built for that purpose, many airport have tunnels under them, mainly for aiport operations or utility tunnles, ans the platforms could just as well be service platforms for luggage and such. Also the date would not match up, the airport went under most of it's expansion in the 70's about 10 years after these platforms appear, and i doubt that they would have kept them in after the expansion unless their was a plan for the airport their was a rail link at the time and not 30 years in the future. It just seems out of place. --Boothy443 | trácht ar 02:38, 17 May 2006 (UTC)


Charter Destinations[edit]

  • Would it be good if someone put in a list of charter destinations and airlines under the current scheduled airlines? Jvlm.123 15:29, 27 June 2006 (UTC)
Other airport articles usually do not include the destinations of charter airlines. Due to the fact that theyt are chartered, thus, they do not have scheduled services and thus the destinations would vary frequently. I'd say just list the airlines but not the destinations. Elektrik Blue 82 15:50, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Irish[edit]

I've partially reverted edits made by User:Jim236 which put the Irish name of Dublin Airport Authority into both the article text and infobox. The infobox is meant to be a quick guide, and since this is the English language Wikipedia the correct place to talk about the Irish name of Dublin Airport Authority plc is in the Dublin Airport Authority article, not every article which links to it. Likewise for Dublin / Baile Átha Cliath.

And perhaps you could use the preview button and edit summaries rather than 50 or so edits? Thanks/wangi 14:27, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

I've asked him to read WP:UE and reverted similar bilingualism on Shannon Airport and Cork Airport; as well as directing him to to the Irish language Wikipedia. --Kiand 15:03, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Delta- Orlando[edit]

Guys $$ Can I clear something up. Someone continually keeps adding a supposed Delta airlines service to Orlando on the page. Delta do not serve Orlando at all from Dublin There are connections available from all US Carriers serving Dublin to Orlando, sure! But if we start listing connections we might as well start adding every airport in the world to the list!!

Please dont add again —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.41.114.103 (talk) 12:56, 5 April 2007 (UTC).

I looked up Dublin to Orlando on Delta's website. Orlando is not even listed as a destination nonstop or direct. Bucs2004 15:41, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
It has been added again. It was on the schedule but it turns out to be a faux-direct flight. According to WP:Airports, international flights to the USA continuing on to a domestic destination is not considered a direct flight where there is an aircraft change in this case in Atlanta. Bucs2004 04:13, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
IT HAS BEEN ADDED AGAIN!!!! I have block them from editing from 2 days from vandalizing. Hopefully, this will teach them a lesson about direct flights and plane changes. Bucs2004 18:00, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
It might operate as the same flight number, but an aircraft change IS involved. DUB-ATL is operated by B763's while the DAL159 ATL-MCO is showing as a B752. A Flight is only considered direct if you do not have to disembark the aircraft before reaching your final destination. In this case de-planeing is nessecary to board a different aircraft to connect to MCO. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.41.119.36 (talk) 16:34, 12 April 2007 (UTC).
Yes, you are correct. It is a faux-direct flight and should not be listed. I just hope it is not added again. Bucs2004 17:29, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
Taken from the wikipedia airports project page "However, avoid listing direct flights that contain a stop at a domestic hub, as virtually all of these are simply flights from one "spoke city" to a hub, with the plane continuing from the hub to a second spoke city. Furthermore, these flights often involve plane changes, despite the direct designation. Including these flights dramatically increases the length of destination listings, artificially inflates the airline's presence at a location and requires constant updating, as these "timetable direct" destinations have little rhyme or reason and may change as often as every week or two" —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.41.119.36 (talk) 19:24, 12 April 2007 (UTC).


Note- there has been a tendency for spam to be posted stating Delta to 'Orlando Sanford'- SFB is used primarily as a charter airport- delta do not fly there at all [1] —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Splash15hotel (talkcontribs) 17:55, 23 April 2007 (UTC).

Airport setup/layout[edit]

It's an odd place Dublin Airport. It manages to combine some interesting technology like the number plate recognition facilities at the long-stay car parks with organisation like, like...chaos?

You can take your life in your hands heading to the Departures area. Drivers are quite happy to drive on when they see people approaching them on the pedestrian crossing. The occasional policeman you may see will ignore anything he sees anyway.

Apart from some of the Greek Island airports, I'd say check-in at Dublin Airport is the most chaotic I've witnessed. You can keep the kids amused by asking them to guess where queues start and end. You could let them mess around on one of the eight Internet kiosks either, if there aren't too many airport staff on them that is and they're not afraid of the stains on the seats.

The ticket desks are always good for a laugh. Even if there is a sign saying that the particular airline only takes reservations in the early hours of the morning (ie before 08:00), it will have the same number of staff behind the desk as carriers that issue tickets all day.

As for luggage retrieval...OMG. After your mile walk from the plane, you'll eventually find your carousel. Hopefully some local hood won't have walked away with your bag, as it would be very easy to walk right through the airport and straight to the carousels.

Hope the Government sells the airport authority to the Germans, it could only get better.

BTW, if you get a receipt for your parking, make sure it has some relation to what you have actually paid. The machines have a bit of a mind of their own.

Airport traffic[edit]

In the very first paragraph, it is written that in 2006 Dublin Airport was the 17th busiest airport of the world. Firstly, I want to suggest that we should add the category (number of passengers) in which Dublin Airport was the busiest airport. Secondly, and even more important, I want to remark that those numbers being stated are far from being realistic. Dublin can't be the 17th busiest airport of the world concerning the number of passengers. The original source must be wrong, since there are dozens of other international airports which have more than 21 million passengers each year. Check this source for another reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World%27s_busiest_airports_by_passenger_traffic —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chrismiksch (talkcontribs) 00:35, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

The entry is correct, it says busiest international airport, see the ref http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World's_busiest_airports_by_international_passenger_traffic 6920 (talk) 09:21, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

I was suprised to read "The Dublin-London route is the second most popular in the world (after Hong Kong-Taipei). There are approximately 50 daily departures from Dublin to all five London Airports...". According to OAG (http://www.oag.com/oag/website/com/OAG+Data/News/Press+Room/Press+Releases+2006/OAG+reveals+the+worlds+busiest+routes+070906), Dublin doesn't even make the top 10. Can anyone cite a source for this claim? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.128.109.242 (talk) 22:23, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Since when has Aer Lingus or Aerosvit served Kiev from Dublin?? (86.147.37.225 (talk) 18:52, 9 May 2008 (UTC))

New Runway Length / Infobox Details[edit]

I think some confusion has arisen regarding the proposed length of the new parallel runway at Dublin Airport; the article currently refers to the Dublin Airport website here when quoting the proposed length of the runway as 3,110m. This is also quoted at the DAA website here. Planning permission for a runway of this length was awarded in August 2007. However earlier this month the Commission for Aviation Regulation recently published the DAA's proposed Capital Investment Programme (CIP). This (large!) PDF file refers to a revised runway length of 3,660m, in order to allow direct long-haul services to the Far East. I believe this is part of a proposal for public consultation, and will require further approval in the future. As such I have given it some mention in the article itself. I have also merged the Capacity and Airport developments sections as these duplicated some information regarding T2 / the new runway. It may well still be a bit disjointed so please feel free to tweak this section.

In any event, a proposed runway should not in my opinion appear in the airport infobox until operations on that runway commence (for example, the London Heathrow Airport article infobox does not mention the proposed third runway there). Any comments welcome. SempreVolando (talk) 20:24, 11 March 2009 (UTC)


Edit Warring: Article Protected[edit]

86.45.248.233, could you civilly explain your edits please and perhaps examine why there might be controversy surrounding it? And please, just leave any personal comments aside, everyone, they get things nowhere. I protected the article rather than blocking anyone as there were more than one 3 revert rule violations, that would just continue the needless hard feelings, I'm guessing.

Guys


The page is wrong. Number one a new control tower is soon going to be under contruction and Terminal 2 is going to be open in OCTOBER 2010. There are 3 runways. 2 of them are used and both are 300 metres longer than secified and another bigger one is soon to be built (2012) over the shortest, unused runway. The new runway will be 3,660 metres long. Under long-haul traffic it says the airport cannot handle Airbus A340 or Boeing 777 aircraft. This is untrue. Both planes are seen regurally and there was once a visit from the Airbus A380. When it says the A340 cannot use the airport basic logic is also required. Princess Juliana International in the Netherland Antilles has a runway shorter than Dublins by over 400 metres and this airport is used by A340s regurally. This page really needs to be updated.Bitingbanana (talk) 19:59, 11 October 2009 (UTC)User:bitingbananaBitingbanana (talk) 19:59, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Airline Destinations[edit]

According to the Aer Lingus.com there is no air service between Dublin and Helsinki for 2010 season. Also should Primera Air be listed on the page because budget travel has ceased trading and flights have stoped. Also Air Malta has not operated a service to Malta since September 2008

Aer Lingus will be operating to Helsinki from March to October, as a seasonal route. The Air Malta route is a seasonal one which operates in the Summer only. As for Primera Air, I really don't know. Other travel agents could be using them. --Footyfanatic3000 (talk  · contribs) 22:56, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Ryanair Grenoble Route[edit]

This routh is not a seasonal service because it is opearting for summer 2010. (according to Ryanair Booking system) <Jamie2k9]]) 17:50, 8 Janurary 2010 (UTC)

"Services" section[edit]

I am inclined to remove this entire section (it was just recently added) on account of it not being noteworthy, nor relevant, and badly-written. Jasepl (talk) 18:26, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Domestic destinations[edit]

{{editsemiprotected}}

"There is over 50 Domestic destinations served from Dublin Airport."

Ireland doesn't have fifty domestic airports, so the comment about fifty domestic destinations is clearly incorrect. Change to:

"There are seven domestic destinations served from Dublin Airport, namely Cork, Donegal, Galway, Kerry, Knock, Shannon, and Sligo."
Hello, please provide a reliable source to verify this, and it will be changed.  fetchcomms 22:23, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Airport traffic[edit]

In the first paragraph please update the following: from "23.5 million passengers passed through the airport in 2008" to "20.5 million passengers passed through the airport in 2009"


According to Dublin Airport Authority's press release from 20th Jan, "Passenger traffic at Dublin Airport declined by 12.6% last year to 20.504 million passengers." http://www.dublinairportauthority.com/media-centre/press-releases/200110_scheme.html

Statistics[edit]

Passenger numbers

Statistics will need to be updated as per DAA's press release:

year 2008 passengers 23.5m / year 2009 passengers 20.5m

If you go to the Destinations and Airlines part of the Dublin Airport website it states the Airport handled 20.5million passengers in 2009 so it can be added to the article

86.143.230.179 (talk) 17:53, 15 March 2010 (UTC)Further to this the Ryanair website claims (14th March) traffic in January 2010 was 18% lower than 2009. You need to update the traffic figures and add commentary as there is a clear indication that Dublin airport is losing passengers. 86.143.230.179 (talk) 17:53, 15 March 2010 (UTC)Ken Harper 15/3/10

Charter flights - indicator or separate table[edit]

I'm here to start a discussion over how charter flights are going to be indicated in this article. In my opinion they should be marked with an indicator while remaining in the same table. Another alternative is to create a separate table from scheduled flights. Any opinions? --Footyfanatic3000 (talk  · contribs) 21:15, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

I think that scheduled & charter should be kept together even if there is or not a sign to indecate the charted flights. Jamie2k9 (talk) 22:09, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Well we really are going to have to do one or the other as, for example, it's ridiculous to list "London-Heathrow" and "Verona-Brescia" under BMI as LHR is directly bookable, however Verona isn't! It's very confusing for readers.

We need to build consensus for something anyway. --Footyfanatic3000 (talk  · contribs) 19:12, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Thomson Airways / Monarch Airlines[edit]

On the First Choise website there are routes which are operated by Monarch Airlines should they be put as bookable and not chartered. A few of the routes operated by Thomson Airlines are not availible to book - Catania, Geneva, Naples, Salzburg, Tenerife-South, Toulouse. Is there another website that they can be booked.

Palmair[edit]

I removed the recent addition of Palmair to the airlines and destinations but it has been added again. My original edit summary stated the Palmair is not an airline just a tour operator. Although it was reverted without explanation a later comment by another user was "not solely operated on behalf of a tour operator". Just to make the point again Palmair is a tour operator it is not an airline, it does not have any licences other than as a tour operator the aircraft is operated by Astraeus Airlines. It is misleading to list this an airline, to have a tour operators name on an aircraft does not make it an airline. MilborneOne (talk) 09:36, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Palmair is a tour operator, but this flight to Bournemouth is a scheduled one. Therefore it is worth being listed, possibly under Palmair, or possibly "Palmair operated by Astraeus Airlines". Palmair have recently started these type of scheduled services, rather than being simply a charter airline. --Footyfanatic3000 (talk  · contribs) 09:40, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
It cant actually run a scheduled service if it is not a licenced airline! MilborneOne (talk) 10:21, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
But this service is being run anyway! It's probably best to put down "Palmair operated by Astraeus Airlines", but we need to list it under something as the service is being run and is bookable. --Footyfanatic3000 (talk  · contribs) 19:16, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
The service is being flown by Astreus as Palmair cant operate scheduled services, so I would have no problem with it being listed a Astreus but we dont normally mention tour operators. From the website Palmair flights are operated by Astraeus but trading as Palmair. MilborneOne (talk) 19:33, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Article now clearly states that these flights are operated by Astraeus on behalf of Palmair. As you said, I see now that Palmair are technically not an airline so we couldn't list it simply as Palmair. :) --Footyfanatic3000 (talk  · contribs) 22:47, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Delta Atlanta[edit]

Delta moved to Terminal 2 in January hence treating the flight as a domestic flight upon arrival in the US. Continental, US Airways, and American flights to the US do not arrive at international areas of the airport. However, I checked the status of DL177(DUB-ATL) and that flight still arrives at the International Concourse E at the Atlanta Airport. Shouldn't it arrive at the domestic concourses and not the international one? Snoozlepet (talk) 04:55, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

I flew Delta 177 from DUB to ATL in August 2012 and, though we left from T2, we arrived in Concourse E. Our connecting flight was also departing from Concourse E (it was domestic, might I add), so we did not have to leave the Terminal, thus not needing to clear customs etc. I'd like to know this too, though. Do they still even use E for International Arrivals since the construction of F? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.159.230.58 (talk) 18:27, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Iberia and Air Nostrum[edit]

Cargo[edit]

Quite a few factual inaccuracies on the cargo section.

Air France originates in Chicago, as such should not be shown on the list or listed as one way only

DHL flights should be listed as operated by European Air Transport

UPS do not operate to Louisville

Fedex Feeder do not operate to Athens, Cork, Düsseldorf, East Midlands, Isle of Man, Hamburg, Liège, London-Stansted, Madrid, Manchester, Porto, Rome-Fiumicino

Fedex do not operate to Frankfurt, Indianapolis, Memphis, Newark. Just paris. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Goingaroundincircles (talkcontribs) 17:03, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

 Yes they do Operate Cork as the FedEx feeder ATR's go from Shannon and Dublin to Cork and onto Paris as this is the only cargo route served at Cork  79.97.111.246 (talk)

United Airlines service to Washington[edit]

as you do not let us edit the page anymore which is quite annoying as this is Wiki not a personal website http://www.thejournal.ie/new-flights-to-run-between-dublin-and-washington-dc-268429-Nov2011/

United does not have the flights loaded into the reservation system at this time yet. We are not sure at this time if United or Continental will operate the route. Snoozlepet (talk) 04:09, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
The flight is now bookable...now to commence on June 8, 2012 instead of May 22. The flight will be operated by Continental and not United per schedules. Snoozlepet (talk) 15:38, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Edit request on 8 December 2011[edit]

Under the heading "Terminal 2" please change "designed by Pascal+Watson architects" to "designed by a team of Arup, Pascal+Watson architects and MACE". The prime contracted party was Arup, but the credit is shared between the three firms.

Luxair resuming service from Luxembourg[edit]

I just checked out the Winter 11/12 timetable from Dublin Airport and it states that the Luxair service from Luxembourg will recommence 23rd December. Can somebody please add this to the airlines and destinations section?

Not done: Its only operating on 23 Dec and 1 Jan and not returning after that. Jamie2k9 (talk) 02:11, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

If you add on 3% to last years figures that brings it up to 18,983,996 also you still have it as 09-10 near the top right of the page — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.40.52.216 (talk) 18:23, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

can you include some better photo's it doesn't exactly show off the best of Dublin no interior shots of T2 and fairly poor photos of aircraft all small what about A330's 747's and the Emirates 777-300ER when it is here next Monday — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.97.111.246 (talk) 01:08, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Fingal is a county[edit]

Here are sources for Fingal being a county:

http://www.fingalceb.ie/
http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/1236084/Fingal
http://www.fingalworks.ie/profileoffingal/descriptionoffingal/
http://www.nuim.ie/nirsa/research/pdf/WPS17.pdf

There are more out there. I have reverted this blatant POV edit. Murry1975 (talk) 10:04, 4 July 2012 (UTC)


If you go into the Fingal page you'll see that County Dublin was actaully abolished in 1994. The area lost its administrative county status in 1994, with Section 9 Part 1(a) of the Local Government (Dublin) Act, 1993 stating that "the county shall cease to exist". As for a county council, the area under the administration of Mayo County Council is County Mayo. The area under the administration of Fingal County Council is Fingal. The clue is in the name - county.Laurel Lodged (talk) 19:03, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Destinations Map[edit]

Is this Destinations Map really worth being added to this article? The list of destinations is easy to maintain, but often outdated. The map is difficult to maintain, so will be even more outdated! Beside that, it is excessively big. To my opinion, it can be removed without losing information. The Banner talk 03:58, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Shannon Stopover[edit]

There is a contradiction in this short section. First it says that there was "... a rule stating that all air traffic between Ireland and the United States must transit through Shannon airport." Two sentences later it says that Open Skies "... resulted in the immediate cancellation of the long-running 'Shannon Stopover' requirement, whereby the Irish government had insisted that 50% of all transatlantic flights between Ireland and the United States must pass through Shannon Airport."

So what was it: 'all air traffic' or '50% of all transatlantic flights'?HenryLarsen (talk) 05:31, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Shannon Airport#Shannon stopover. The revision of the system is not properly added in the article. The Banner talk 21:50, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

WestJet to Toronto[edit]

The new WestJet services from Dublin to Canada have been announced. The airline states that it will fly NON-STOP to St. John's, Newfoundland, and the same plane and flight will then continue to Toronto (Pearson), Ontario. In theory, the flight is direct as the airplane does not change, but the WestJet website states that DUB-YYZ through passengers will spend 1.5 hours on the ground in Newfoundland. Since this is not truly non-stop, does YYZ count as a destination from Dublin with WestJet? I would appreciate clarification. Thank you!
