Dublin Airport to stop cars picking up passengers outside terminals

Dublin Airport is seeking planning permission to install a new paid drop-off and pick-up zone at Dublin Airport, in an effort to reduce car journeys to and from the facility and stop private drivers picking up passengers outside terminals.

The proposed new paid drop-off and pick-up zones will operate in front of terminal one and terminal two, but will not be introduced during the Covid-19 crisis.

A spokesman for DAA said the current system has been “abused” by some for years, with cars illegally stopping to wait for pick-ups or circling the campus roads several times before they collect a person.

DAA said the aim of the new system is to reduce car journeys to and from the airport and to encourage passengers to make greater use of public transport.
