The daa has reported a "significant improvement" in the amount of time it is taking passengers to get through security screening at Dublin Airport.
Due to "continued reduction in processing times, aided by the ongoing recruitment of new security staff and the availability of prudent contingency measures", the daa says passengers can be reassured as they travel over the coming weeks.
Speaking at a Joint Oireachtas Transport Committee Hearing last week (week commencing 25 July), Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport, Managing Director said that during the month of July so far – Dublin Airport's busiest month in three years which will see almost 3.1 million passengers pass through – more than 95% of all passengers have passed through security in under 45 minutes, while more than 85% of passengers have queued for 30 minutes or less.
This builds on a strong performance during June, which saw Dublin Airport handle more than 2.8 million passengers in total, with around 90% of passengers passing through security in 45 minutes or less.
The recruitment of more than 150 security officers since the beginning of June means that since October 2021, daa has almost doubled its security team at Dublin Airport through the hiring of more than 350 officers.
The recruitment of additional staff will continue over the weeks and months ahead, confirmed the daa.
