Dublin Airport - Control Tower

The new control tower at Dublin Airport will be the country's highest occupied building when it is completed in two years time.
The tower is just under 87 metres tall - nearly 60% higher than Liberty Hall in the city centre.
Construction of the tower is necessary to cater for a second runway at the airport.
The tower itself is scheduled for completion in 2020, which the northern runway is due to be completed in 2021.
Construction of the tower, which dwarfs the existing control tower at the airport, is estimated to cost €50m.

Dublin Airport - Dallas Route

Dublin Airport welcomes American Airlines’ announcement that it is to operate a new Dublin-Dallas Fort Worth summer service from next June.
The daily service will be Ireland’s first direct flight to Dallas, which is American’s largest hub for connecting traffic. It will improve connectivity from Ireland to Texas and also to a large number of onward destinations in the United States and Latin America.
“Dallas is an excellent addition to the existing route network from Dublin Airport and we’re delighted that American Airlines will be serving this market with a daily summer service from next year,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.  “This new route will further grow tourism and trade between Ireland and the US, and we look forward to working closely with American to promote the new service on both sides of the Atlantic,” Mr Harrison added.
