‘Returning from holiday’ top reason for those arriving in Dublin Airport

A majority of passengers surveyed as they arrived at Dublin Airport last week listed ‘returning from holiday’ as their reason for travel.

Data taken from surveys of arriving passengers show that arrivals into the airport increased by more than 10% between 22nd and 28th of February, compared to the previous week.

The data also showed that 7,261 Irish residents arrived into the country during this period, while 4,346 non-residents arrived.

Of the reasons given for travel, ‘returning from holiday/visit’ was the most popular, followed by travelling for work or business, visiting a sick relative, medical reasons, or for a funeral.

Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney has said the legislation on mandatory quarantine is expected to be signed by President Michael D Higgins very soon.
