The floor in the Terminal 1 (T1) departures area at Dublin Airport in Ireland is to be replaced as part of a €10m (US$11.2m) upgrade project.
Parts of the floor have been upgraded several times over the past four decades but in some areas the original tiling laid when the building opened in 1972 is still in place. Other improvements to the departures floor include new wooden and tile fascia around the walls, and the removal of ticket desks to create more light and space. The project is part of an overall program to modernize T1 and enhance the overall passenger experience.
Vincent Harrison, managing director, Dublin Airport, said, “T1 is 44 years old and has welcomed over 400 million passengers during that time.
“This new, brighter floor tile will significantly improve the look and feel of the departures area. With the arrivals hall upgrade well under way, our goal is to create a greatly enhanced passenger experience for all our customers traveling through T1.”
Refurbishment of the arrivals hall includes new flooring, a replacement ceiling, the removal of desks currently situated in some window areas to allow natural light in and a new look to the front of T1.
