To ensure that travelers navigate the airport without incident throughout the holiday season, Dublin Airport https://www.dublinairport.com/ has shared its top 12 advice.
How to get ready for security screening, what to check before heading to the airport, and the dos and don’ts while traveling with gifts are among the tips offered by Dublin Airport.
For travellers flying during the Christmas holiday, Dublin Airport advises arriving two hours before a short-haul flight and three hours before a long-haul trip.
Additionally, passengers who are checking luggage should allot an extra hour or so.
The advice is being given as Dublin Airport prepares for its busiest Christmas in three years, with 1.5 million people expected to arrive and depart between Friday, December 16, and Wednesday, January 4.
According to Dublin Airport spokeswoman Graeme McQueen, “the true magic of Christmas at Dublin Airport will be restored this December with families from around the world once again totally free to enjoy Christmas together following two extremely interrupted years due to the Covid pandemic.”
“The arrivals halls in Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport are heart-warming places to be at this time of year as people are reunited with loved ones.
“Over the years we’ve seen everything from marriage proposals to families being reunited for the first time in many years, sometimes decades.
“We’ll also be seeing lots of emotional scenes as grandparents, aunts and uncles meet their grandchildren, nieces and nephews for the very first time.”
Around 98,000 passengers are scheduled to arrive and depart through both terminals on Friday, December 23, making it the airport’s busiest day before Christmas.
The days following Christmas will also be busy as travelers make their way to locations for skiing and winter sun.
It is anticipated that Monday, January 2, will be the busiest day of January, with about 94,000 people passing through.
On Christmas Day, Dublin Airport will be closed, but some employees will still be on duty.
“Dublin Airport will have additional Customer Care staff on duty over the Christmas season to ensure passengers have an efficient and smooth journey through the airport,” McQueen continued.
“We would also ask passengers to prepare for security screenings by removing their outer jacket, belts, keys, coins and laptops from cases so that security searches are kept to a minimum.”
