On Travel Talk today we chatted to Graeme McQueen, Media Relations Manager for Dublin Airport DAA - “The queues have been flowing really well with a wait time of under 30 minutes at Terminal 1 this morning,” DAA spokesperson Graeme McQueen said. Up to 500,000 passengers are expected to move through airport Dublin Airport over Easter. Passengers are still being advised to arrive at the airport up to 3.5 hours before their flight is due to depart. Dublin Airport is operating with the maximum number of security personnel over the Easter weekend returning to “normal levels of staffing,” according to the DAA. More than 600 DAA staff have been redeployed to assist airport screeners, who are focusing solely on security checks and screening passengers. Other staff are helping to monitor and manage the queues and assisting in tray return duties to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible. The DAA said there have been no missed flights so far due to delays at the airport. The weekend is expected to be extremely busy at Dublin Airport up until Easter Monday.
People travelling from Dublin Airport from Thursday morning were left pleasantly surprised after minimal delays getting through security. Passengers have been sharing their positive experiences at the airport, with many praising airport staff for making it "stress-free".
