It's in the thread title - 15 million people.

The whole airport will then have a capacity of 30 million passengers per year.

Dublin is planning a metro to the airport and as far as I can see the proposed station seems to be quite a distance from this terminal.
People hate dragging heavy luggage long distances so car and bus will probably continue to be the preferred mode of transport to the airport, unless of course Ryanair take over the airport, and you probably won´t be allowed to take luggage with you at all.
Shouldn't be a problem. Metro station will be across the road, connected with an underground passage. Makes no difference whether the station is under the building or not, plus putting the station under T2 would mean people going to T1 would have a long way to walk.

What a fantastic new terminal for Dublin! I look forward to using it on future visits to the city.

I heard a while ago that the DAA are struggling to get airlines to move to the new terminal, most airlines want to stay at the existing terminal. Is this true?

The negotiating process is not complete yet although most of the US carriers operating out of DUB have signed up - the preclearence facility for the US is a major draw for them so that was to be expected. Aer Lingus and Ethiad airways have signed up aswell. Dublin is the Aer Lingus hub so not really a suprise either. The only airline that has expressed public disapproval is Ryanair. They wanted to build their own terminal. (You can imagine what that would be like). It will continue to use T1.


I found these pictures on flickr by tearbringer which give a good sense of perspective. (T1 is behind T2)

The last picture is by dublinguy77 also on flickr.

Cubanito92 - IMO T1 is like a dogs dinner. It was added to constantly for 30 years. It's a mess. Alot of it is new and very modern but the old parts need work. The new terminal is only part of an entire upgrade of the airport including T1 and the internal roads network. So hopefully something will be done about the inadequate facade on T1.

Air India to consider T2 as US hub.

Quote:

Livemint.com



New Delhi: India and Ireland are likely to expand their air services pact to allow their flag carriers—Air India and Aer Lingus, respectively—to start flying to the two countries, said a civil aviation ministry official familiar with the development.

The move comes as Air India is set to consider Ireland’s Dublin airport as a potential new hub in Europe for its one-stop flights between India and the US, he said.

Air India, run by National Aviation Co. of India Ltd, has been scouting for an airport in Europe that’s cheaper to operate than its current hub in Frankfurt, Germany.

The airline’s chairman and managing director Arvind Jadhav and senior civil aviation ministry officials will inspect the airport in the Irish capital this fortnight, the ministry official said.

The airports at Copenhagen, Denmark and Vienna, Austria are also likely hubs. But Dublin offers an advantage as the only European airport where passengers can clear immigration for the US, and avoid long queues at congested airports such as New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Another ministry official said it was too early to take a decision on moving to a new hub in Europe, given that Air India is fighting for a government bailout to remain afloat.

Questions sent by email to Dublin Airport Authority Plc., which manages Dublin, Shannon and Cork airports in Ireland, remained unanswered.

A London-based aviation analyst said the facility of US immigration clearance was drawing even European airlines to Dublin.

“British Airways(BA) recently started an all-business A318 service from London City Airport to New York JFK with a fuel stop in Dublin on the outbound only,” he said.

“BA has added the benefit of pre-clearing US immigration in a dedicated queue, so the stop actually doesn’t delay passengers, particularly non-US passport holders, as it can take up to an hour to clear immigration in JFK,” the analyst said. He too didn’t want to be named.

Besides Ireland’s Dublin and Shannon airports, only some Canadian and Caribbean airports offer US immigration clearance outside US territory.

So what kind of flights will Terminal 2 handle? Long haul?

Will Terminal 1 be relegated to Ryan Air and short European/British flights?

The terminal looks great. Ireland should be very proud.

T2 will handle only long haul flights between the US, Asia and the Far East. T1 it has to be said is very modern itself and very big. But it is likely it will be "relegated" to short haul - although it is very long haul compatible - so I have a suspicion long haul will also operate from T1. Not every long haul airlin e has signed up to T2 yet.

TBH I would be sad to see long haul leave T1. T1 has served us very well and is a terminal that is very Irish and yet very abroad in a strange sense. Always sad to leave and happy to come back. Very strange experience. I hope T2 lives up to it.

And, yes, as an Irish person I am very proud of this construction.

Will Aer Lingus be moving all flights to T2? It doesnt make much sense for them to move long haul to T2 and keep short haul at T1.

Still, this is an amazing terminal and the more pictures I see the more impressed I am.

Haha, not exactly 418, it's impressive but not that impressive! Looks like it's using the same numbering system as the old terminal, i.e. one section starts with 1xx, the next 2xx and the final one 3xx (see here). So the new terminal will number its gates from 400 on.

Maybe Aer Lingus will move all their flights, but they are in quite a bit of financial trouble so it's probably only viable to pay the expensive T2 fees for the lucrative transatlantic routes.

Anyway the new terminal looks fantastic, even better on the inside. Excellent piece of infrastructure that we can be proud of. And for once it's designed for long-term future growth rather than the cheapest stop-gap solution, which makes a pleasant change.
