Dublin International airport arrivals
Dublin Airport is located north of the capital Dublin and in the east of the country. Travel easily by taxi for 30 euros to the center. If you prefer to travel a little cheaper, you can take the local or Airlink express bus.
The first Dublin airport arrivals already took place in 1940. The flight came from the city of Liverpool in the UK. The terminal designed by FitzGerald had a capacity of 100 thousand passengers per year. During the Second World War, the airport was used by the air force. There was only one flight to Liverpool. After the war, in 1947, the Dutch airline KLM started a flight route from Dublin to Amsterdam. Today it is still one of the busiest escape routes. Because it was getting busier at the airport, new runways were introduced.
Ten years later, a new terminal was added, called North Terminal. This terminal should serve all Dublin arrivals. There was also a new departure gate to accommodate larger aircraft. It was found that it would be difficult if the airport continued to grow in passenger numbers. The terminal would not be able to handle that capacity. That is why a new terminal was started in 1971, which was opened a year later and replaced the old one. This allowed it to process 6 million passengers per year. In 2010, a second terminal with a capacity of 24 million passengers was added. Most flights are mainly holiday. You will also see this in the increase in holiday destinations in the summer. In winter there are still many possibilities to large and small cities. There are also various options for traveling to the US.
