Nearly 50,000 people will pass through Dublin Airport this weekend

Nearly 50,000 people will be passing through Dublin Airport this weekend, with just over 150,000 people either arriving or departing from the airport this week.

This comes as the EU Digital Covid Certificate was issued to fully vaccinated individuals this week for the first time in Ireland.

In relation to aircraft movements, there has been 297 aircraft departing or arriving from the airport on a daily basis, whereas this time last year, it would have been close to 750 per day.

There has also been a slight increase in the number of people travelling this month, with 21,500 people travelling this week which is up from 14,000 during the first two weeks of July.


The top 5 destination airports from Dublin are Heathrow, London, Amsterdam, London Stansted, Frankfurt and Chicago.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Dublin Airport has lost almost 252,000 flights.

According to Eurocontrol, an average of 228 flights per day have been operating out of Dublin which is 69% less than a corresponding period in 2019.

Ryanair continues to be Dublin Airport’s busiest airline followed by Aer Lingus.

The top destinations from Dublin are the UK, followed by Spain, Germany, United States and France.
