Record one million passengers connect through Dublin Airport

Dublin Airport has announced that the number of passengers connecting onward to another destination exceeded one million between January and October 2016, which was an increase of 20% over the same period last year. This is believed to be largely due to the additional capacity on new and existing routes.

Ronan Fitzsimons, head of transfer product, Dublin Airport, said, “The ability to fill this capacity, given the size of the overall market, is testament to the combination of value fares and the product proposition which Dublin Airport can offer. We see Dublin Airport as an airport that people want to connect through, rather than have to connect through.”

To mark the one million milestone, the airport held a competition during the summer for onward connecting passengers only, requiring them to take a selfie in front of a ‘10 reasons to connect at Dublin Airport’ sign, then share it on Twitter. The winner was Ryan Meyers from Chicago, USA, who received two return transatlantic flights. Meyers said, “I am always highly impressed by the ease and convenience of connecting at Dublin Airport, the customer service available and the airport’s free and reliable wi-fi.”

In total, more than 24 million passengers traveled through Dublin Airport in the first 10 months of the year, up 12% for the same period in 2015. The airport offers direct flights to 180 destinations in 40 countries on four continents, and connects 400 city pairs.
