Dublin Airport hit badly by the Great Recession

RYANAIR CHIEF executive Michael O’Leary yesterday said the airline would continue to pare back its services from Dublin airport in a move to up the ante against the Irish Government’s proposed introduction a €10 air travel tax.

Passengers traveling through Dublin Airport over the weekend have reported it being incredibly quiet – “it’s usually pandemonium in there”. Officially there was a 12% decline in the Passenger throughput at Dublin Airport for the month of February, over the same period last year, according to the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA).

Meanwhile the DAA is investing €2bn in new facilities over the next decade and planning permision has been granted for a new runway. Hmmmmm…?
