Dublin Airport - June Passenger increase.

More than 370,000 passengers are expected to travel through Dublin Airport this June Bank Holiday weekend, a 6% increase over the same weekend last year.
Over 2,660 flights will arrive and depart this June Bank Holiday, which is expected to be the busiest weekend of the year so far, according to Dublin Airport spokeswoman Siobhán O’Donnell.
“We’re expecting over 90,000 passengers per day over the four days between Friday, June 2 and Monday, June 5.  Friday will be the busiest day of the weekend with more than 700 aircraft arriving and departing in a single day,” Ms O’Donnell said.
"As this weekend is set to the busiest of the year so far we strongly advise passengers to prepare for security screening in advance and to go directly to the security screening area once they have checked-in.
“Dublin Airport’s route network is set to expand further over the coming months as five new long-haul and six new short-haul services are being launched this year providing passengers with greater choice and flexibility,” she added.
More than 8.3m passengers have used Dublin Airport in the first four months of the year, which is a 7% increase over last year. This means that Dublin Airport has welcomed almost 528,000 additional passengers during the first four months of the year.
