Etihad premium lounge in Dublin


Offers a range of top quality facilities and services




Published Saturday, February 12, 2011

Etihad Airways is officially recognised as the 'Best Long Haul Airline' flying out of Ireland, having picked up the accolade last month at both the Irish Travel Trade News Awards and the Irish Travel Agents Association Awards.


Etihad Airways has officially opened its new premium lounge at Dublin Airport's Terminal 2 (T2). Etihad became the first airline to operate its scheduled arrival and departure services from T2 in late November 2010.
The new lounge offers Etihad's premium customers a range of top quality facilities and services that have not been seen in Ireland before, including: a high-tech "Business Centre", offering Mac workstations with broadband access and printer facilities, along with free WiFi for those that prefer to work from their own laptops, shower rooms, a luggage room for bag storage,a comfortable main lounge area boasting a library of books, magazines and newspapers from around the world, furnished with Italian leather chairs and soft sofas, a wide variety of food for customers travelling out of Ireland, including an a la carte menu, international buffet, and a special children's menu, and a dedicated 'family room' for younger travellers, stocked with toys, books and a TV to keep them inspired and entertained as well as other facilities.


James Hogan, Etihad Airways' Chief Executive Officer, said: "Ireland is a very important market for us and one in which we have continually invested. Our commitment to Ireland was reinforced last year when we increased our services to 10 flights a week between Dublin and our home base in Abu Dhabi, and this commitment was further strengthened when we opened a Line Maintenance Facility at Dublin Airport last June. The opening of this lounge marks another stage in the development of that relationship".
Etihad Airways is officially recognised as the 'Best Long Haul Airline' flying out of Ireland, having picked up the accolade last month at both the Irish Travel Trade News Awards and the Irish Travel Agents Association Awards.
Late last year Etihad Airways took the top award at the World Travel Awards, having been voted World's Leading Airline' by more than 180,000 travel industry professionals from over 175 countries. This is the second year in a row that Etihad has won this prestigious title.


Justin Warby, Etihad Airways Country Manager for Ireland, said: "Today is another milestone in Etihad Airways' Irish operation. The new premium lounge is a perfect reflection of the Etihad brand - modern comforts with sophisticated elegance, which will enhance our customers' travel experience flying out of Ireland." The new 332m2 lounge has expansive views of the apron/taxiways and overlooks the gate where Etihad will operate many of its services.

Air India eyes Dublin as its transatlantic hub
26 March 2011
The Irish Times

FLYING:A DELEGATION from Air India is expected to visit Dublin Airport in the next month with a view to making Terminal 2 its transatlantic hub.

Air India used to route five flights a day through Frankfurt en route to North America but has since withdrawn, complaining of a lack of capacity and a high cost per passenger.

Minister for Tourism Leo Varadkar was in India for St Patrick’s Day along with Dublin Airport Authority chief executive Declan Collier to try and secure Terminal 2 as an Air India hub.

The contract with Air India is up for grabs. Seven European airports were considered. Dublin is in the final two. The other is believed to be Birmingham Airport.

Birmingham has a large population base and a big Indian community, but a spokesman for the DAA said it had a “very compelling offer” as landing charges at Dublin Airport were among the lowest in Europe.

T2 also has a Custom and Border Protection pre-clearance facility for the United States. This would mean that Air India passengers could go on to regional airports in the US without having to go through customs again.

The potential move opens up the prospect of direct flights between Ireland and India for the first time creating a new tourism market in both directions.

Varadkar said Irish tourists travelling to Australia and New Zealand would be able to use Delhi rather than Dubai as a stopover point.

Ireland and India are now working on a bilateral Air Services Agreement and freedom rights which allow an airline to pick up and fly passengers from one foreign destination to another. Though India is already a popular tourism destination for Irish visitors, Tourism Ireland has identified India as a huge emerging tourism market with a growing middle class.

It said it will lobby the Department of Justice and Law Reform to facilitate a stopover visa in Ireland for Indian travellers en route to the US.

An office to facilitate Indian visitors to Ireland was opened in February 2004 and a training programme for Indian travel agents, known as Shamrock Agents, has made some of the key players familiar with Ireland. Tourism Ireland believes there is a lot of potential in India’s growing golfing market which already attracts between 500 and 1,000 Indian golfers a year to Ireland, most of whom are among the wealthiest strata of Indian society. Organisers of golf tours believe that market could grow to 10,000 golfers a year within five years.

Emirates announces new Dublin-Dubai service
08/09/2011 - 15:05:39

The Emirates airline is to begin a new daily Dublin-Dubai service from January, it was announced today.

The new long-haul service will operate from Dublin Airport's Terminal 2.

Transport chiefs have said it will expand the airport’s direct links to the Middle East and its onward connections into India, Africa, South East Asia, Australasia and China.

“We are delighted to welcome Emirates to Dublin and we look forward to a long and successful partnership with our newest customer,” said DAA Chief Executive Declan Collier.

“The improvements in Dublin Airport’s facilities in recent years, including the opening of Terminal 2, and our new long-haul gates in Pier E, was a major factor in winning this new service for Ireland,” Mr Collier added.

Tourism Minister Leo Varadkar also welcomed the news, saying it would "provide greater ease of access to Ireland from the emerging tourism markets in the Middle East and Asia" and it would also be significant in developing stronger trade links with these regions.

"This is great news for Irish passengers, for Dublin Airport and for the wider economy," Minister Varadkar said.

"It’s also a very welcome stimulus for our tourism industry."

The new route was also welcomed by Tourism Ireland as well as Dublin Chamber of Commerce.

Emirates will operate daily flights to Dubai from January 9 with an Airbus A330-200 operating in a three-class configuration, offering passengers a choice of First, Business and Economy class travel.

The new Dublin-Dubai service will have a daily departure from Dublin at 12.55pm arriving in Dubai at 12.25am the following day. The return flight leaves Dubai at 7am with a scheduled arrival in Dublin at 11.30am.

Emirates, which is the world’s sixth largest airline, operates services to more than 114 destinations in 67 countries.

United Airlines to begin operating from Dublin

United Airlines to announce Washington DC service to Dublin


New service from Dulles Airport set to start in May 2012



United Airlines will shortly announce a new flight between Dublin and Washington starting on May 22nd in 2012.

The news is a major boost for Irish tourism from the US and reopens the nation’s capital to flights to and from ireland.

The flights will depart from Dulles Airport, not Reagan International according to reports.

The aircraft will hold 180 passengers and will have a premium economy section of fifty seats, the first airline flying to Ireland to offer the in-between category between economy and first class.



Read more: http://www.irishcentral.com/news/Uni...#ixzz1cq6HhcTb
*actually it's wrong I think that it is the first in-between economy and first class category flights as I think it is the second 3 class cabin out of Dublin after Emirates


Also Aeroflot Russian Airlines may be making a return to Dublin as they have applied for and received permission for 3 weekly flights between Dublin and Moscow.

And just one more snippet of news. Air China is mulling direct flights between Dublin and Beijing.

Dublin airport experience new routes boom

Dublin airport is set to welcome more visitors into it’s realms this 2012 from Scandinavia and the United States. The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has said that its transatlantic market had grown this year, with transatlantic passenger numbers up by more than 6% to just under 1.4 million .

Scandinavian Airlines, who this year celebrate 45 years of flying into Dublin, have announced an increase in capacity on their three non-stop routes from Dublin to Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen set to take effect in 2012.

SAS have been flying consistently from Dublin to Scandinavia for 45 years. Alan Sparling, Ireland manager for Scandinavian Airlines commented that 2011 has proved to be a good year for SAS in Ireland, with a 6% increase in passenger numbers whilst at the same time, increasing the number of visitors traveling to Ireland from Scandinavia.

“We anticipate the increase in leisure travel from Ireland to Scandinavia to continue in 2012, hence the reason why we are putting more seats into the market.” Sparling continued.

United Airlines is a new daily direct Dublin to Washington service from this June. United will fly from Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport to Washington’s Dulles International Airport, which is one of its East Coast hubs, and to more than 80 onward connecting destinations.

The new United Airlines Washington service, which will begin on June 8, 2012, will depart Dublin daily at 11.25am and arrive in Washington Dulles at 2.25pm local time the same day. This is good news for all passengers interested in traveling in and out of Ireland and firmly establishes Dublin airport as a staple on the travel map.

Emirates touches down: Daily service to Dublin from Dubai begins

RONAN McGREEVY

Tue, Jan 10, 2012

IT WAS like a return to pre-recession times at Dublin airport yesterday morning as the first Emirates flight arrived 15 minutes before its appointed time from Dubai.

The airline will serve Dublin daily with an A330-200.

Assembled guests sipped champagne and ate canapés while they watched from a specially decked-out lounge at Terminal 2 as flight EK0162 touched down to the traditional water-cannon salute.

Emirates have spared no expense in entering the Irish market, even to the extent of hiring Lionel Richie to entertain 800 guests at the Convention Centre Dublin last month.

Before the aircraft had even taken off, Emirates declared the daily service a success with 90 per cent seat occupancy. This is well above the 60 per cent it needed to break even, said the airline’s president, Tim Clark, who was on the inaugural flight with the Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar.

Mr Varadkar said the Emirates service, which adds to rivals Etihad’s twice-daily flights from Dublin to the Middle East, were a “good-news story when it is hard to get good news in Ireland”.

Mr Clark said they had been attempting to get a service into Ireland for 10 years and their research had shown demand remained “very strong” despite the recession. “For us it was something we really couldn’t put off any longer. It was too important for us to leave out.”

The airline had envisaged needing an A330-220 with a capacity of 237 passengers for the first 18 months of the service, but they were already planning to introduce a bigger Boeing 777, he said.

It is Emirates 118th route. The airline, which is backed by the Dubai government, has reached impressive levels of expansion, turning over $15.6 billion last year in a difficult market.

The inaugural flight included a number of Middle Eastern and Indian media. Where previously there was no direct connections between Ireland and the Middle East, there are now 17 flights a week divided between Emirates and Etihad Airways based in neighbouring Abu Dhabi.

Tourism Ireland chief executive Niall Gibbons said Emirates gave Ireland another entry into growing tourism markets.

Tourism numbers were up by 10 per cent from Australia and developing markets in Asia last year and he expected double-digit growth again this year.

Mr Gibbons pointed to projections which showed Asia would account for a third of all the world’s tourism spending within 15 years. It was critical for Ireland to have a stake in that market, he said.

“This new services opens 10 new gateways into India, four into China, several into Australia, and New Zealand is just one stop away. From a connectivity perspective Ireland is much easier to get to.”
