daa: Resolving runway planning conditions will be a challenge

1 May, 2019

daa reported (30-Apr-2019) resolving runway planning conditions and delivering new facilities needed to meet increasing demand will be challenges during 2019. CEO Daltan Philips stated capacity at Dublin Airport "would be almost halved during its busiest time of the day, which is between 06:00 and 07:00". Mr Philips added: "It has never been our intention to have lots more flights in the middle of the night, but these conditions would decimate the airport's busiest times of the day and have a hugely negative affect on the entire Irish economy for decades to come". [more - original PR]
