DUB | Dublin Airport

http://www.independent.ie/business/i...-29307341.html

The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has appointed a consortium of consultants to rejuvenate Terminal 1 at Dublin Airport.

The DAA yesterday confirmed that the consortium of Pascall+Watson, Mott MacDonald and EC Harris has been awarded the contract. Pascall+Waton designed the T2 terminal.

According to a spokesman for the DAA, the task for the consultants "is to produce a plan to maximise the efficient use of Terminal 1 at Dublin Airport in order to allow the DAA to grow traffic sustainably; improve the customer experience and grow commercial revenues".

Last year, T1 handled 54pc or 10.3m of Dublin Airport's 19.1m passengers with T2 accounting for the remaining 46pc. Passenger numbers at Dublin last year increased by 2pc compared with 2011 – the second successive year of growth at Dublin.

The continuing dominance of T1 at Dublin is ensured with Ryanair continuing to use the terminal along with British Airways, Cityjet, Lufthansa, SAS, Air Canada, Norwegian and Iberia Express.

"The consultants have been tasked with advising us on how we can improve the layout, appearance and functionality of T1, taking into account forecast passenger growth and customer requirements," the DAA spokesman said.

"The outlook of any plan will be to the year 2019 and it should allow Dublin Airport to optimise the use of capacity across the two terminals during this period. The plan should provide for the most practicable, efficient use of T1."

This is welcoming news.

I hope they keep some reference to the original design and not just stick up random-tiled cladding like they usually do. The vertical fins look good.

Yes considering how much profit DAA make, it's very long overdue. Corruption is rampant in this country and It still annoys me that much of it goes unnoticed. DAA really have to get their acts clean and start doing their job rather than keeping the profits for personal vetted interests to their cronies.

Be interesting to see who launches an A321neo service on those US east coast routes from Dub or Birmingham first. Or a 737 Max if Norwegian ever gets past the US veto.

AL came very late to the 757 idea. They leased them a few years back for daily winter services on A330 summer routes

Surely an A321neo LR order can't be too far off for Aer Lingus. It would open up the possibility of either adding rotations to the currently served US east coast cities, thus boosting the Dub hub idea by allowing more flexibility to go from A via Dub to B. Alternatively they could use them to open smaller markets, maybe the likes of Cleveland, or even a return to Baltimore.

Passenger numbers up 17% so far this year, with several new routes starting in the coming months there's no reason growth can't be sustained so 28-29 million passengers looks possible for this year.

Also the new north runway confirmed, construction to start next year and operational by 2020:

http://www.dublinairport.com/gns/at-...n_Airport.aspx

Quote:
daa is progressing its plans to deliver a new runway for Dublin Airport.The 3,110 metre runway will be built 1.6km north of the existing main runway and is expected to be delivered in 2020.Dublin Airport is investing in the region of €320 million in this multi-faceted project which will comprise multiple contracts and packages of works. Dublin Airport received planning permission in August 2007 to build a new runway, but the plans were put on hold due to the economic downturn and subsequent fall in passenger numbers.However, the recovery in passenger numbers, particularly in the past two years, has been significant. The continuation of growth at Dublin Airport is dependent on having sufficient capacity available to satisfy future demand. “Last year was the busiest year ever in the airport’s history with a record 25 million passengers travelling in 2015. Passenger numbers continue to grow strongly in 2016 with double digit growth recorded in the first two months of this year,” said daa Chief Executive Kevin Toland.“We are progressing our plans to deliver the new runway in accordance with the development and pathway for growth outlined in the Government’s National Aviation Policy (NAP). Dublin Airport’s North Runway will significantly improve Ireland’s connectivity supporting trade, foreign direct investment and tourism,” he added.The rapid recovery in passenger numbers is due to a combination of almost 50 new routes and services, significant additional capacity increases on a number of existing routes, and nine new airlines operating at Dublin Airport. Total long-haul connectivity has grown by more than 65% since T2 opened, while short-haul connectivity has increased by 16%.“Driven by demand from airlines and passengers, Dublin Airport’s current runway infrastructure is at capacity during the peak hours and this must be addressed to enable future growth. The north runway will significantly improve Ireland’s connectivity which plays a critical role in growing passenger numbers and sustaining the future economic development of Ireland,” said Mr Toland.Dublin Airport’s North Runway development has the potential to open up connectivity to a range of long-haul destinations, particularly in fast growing economies in Asia, Africa and South America. The delivery of a new runway could support a further 31,000 new jobs over the next two decades, contributing €2.2 billion to GDP.The current planning permission was granted with 31 conditions attached. “We have stated previously that two of these conditions are onerous and would severely reduce the future operational capacity of the airport at key periods. This has implications on our ability to support future traffic growth at the airport and we are looking at how this can be addressed,” according to Mr Toland.“We are very conscious of balancing the national and business needs with those of our local communities and we will continue to work closely with our neighbours in relation to this project,” Mr Toland added.Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe TD, welcomed the news saying that the runway project was a vital piece of infrastructure that would support Ireland’s continuing economic recovery. “This project is of major strategic importance to Ireland as an island economy, in terms of improved connectivity. It has the potential to create thousands of jobs, both directly and indirectly, over the coming years. Our National Aviation Policy (NAP) recognises our dependence on aviation for our links with the rest of the world and the importance of ensuring that the sector can continue to grow to underpin economic recovery and development. “In recent years, Dublin Airport has experienced a strong and sustainable return to growth. However, in order to capitalise on this growth and sustain it into the future, we need to put in place the appropriate airport infrastructure. I welcome daa’s plans in this regard and also the company’s commitment to work closely with all stakeholders, including local residents and community groups, in relation to the delivery of the new runway.”The North Runway has featured in successive Local Area and County Development Plans since the 1970s. As a result of years of careful planning, land for this development was safeguarded over 40 years ago, so the runway will be delivered within the airport’s existing land bank.Enabling works are due to commence later this year with construction of the north runway scheduled to start in 2017. The project will support c.1,200 jobs during its development as well as generating significant employment opportunities in the local supply chain for construction materials.The development of the new runway will further enhance Dublin Airport’s economic impact which currently supports or facilitates a total of 97,400 jobs in the Irish economy.A major study conducted by economic consultants InterVISTAS last year found that Dublin Airport contributes €6.9 billion to the national economy. The overall impact includes almost 16,000 people employed directly at the airport campus by daa, airlines and other companies, the multiplier effects that flow from that employment, and the other sectors of the Irish economy that are facilitated by Dublin Airport.

Runways at Dublin Airport now on Google Street View

https://www.siliconrepublic.com/play...rt-street-view

Dublin Airport has claimed it has become the first airport in the world to put a virtual tour of its runway onto Google Maps in glorious 360-degrees.

Dublin Airport Google Street View can be accessed through Google Maps from any desktop or mobile device by typing ‘Dublin Airport’ into the search bar.

All 75,000 square metres of Terminals 1 and 2 were captured previously and are also available to view in the dedicated gallery of the Street View website.

The gallery is also accessible through the Street View App.

The breakneck 15% YoY growth in Dublin from early 2014 finally moderated to c.10% March-May and after the collapse in UK customer sentiment post Brexit it will probably average the year at perhaps 8% now. Still a pretty shiny growth number. Should still make 27m PAX in 2016 when the dust settles.

Bit of an update from Dublin..

27.9 million passengers last year making for another record year

https://www.dublinairport.com/latest...28m-passengers

Several new routes announced already for this year including Qatar to Doha, Aer Lingus to Maimi and several short haul additions. Also rumours of Hainan Airlines to Beijing and recently of both Norwegian and SAS setting up a base at DUB so the 30m marker should be topped this year.

Prelim works have started on the new runway though still no update on the much delayed and much needed metro link and with the current government it still seems like a pipe dream.

A third terminal has also entered the discussion though there's plenty more pressing projects needed before T3 is built
