Yes 6 gates are blocked while US departures are in operation but AFAIK EK and EY request the specific stand and I think it best caters for the B777 and possibly doesn't block a second stand. I presume it was the afternoon arrival coming in earlier than scheduled that caused the wait.


I not sure if all the US gates are still blocked once the main bulk of departures happen (ie between 12.30-16.30) but as EI's 330's would be coming in from Europe arund 2 ish they probably still closed off. Qatat wouldn't have a problem if they were to come they would get a stand, something like this is small and wouldn't stop them. They bus passengers to terminals at other airports and as they are willing to use EDI facilities DUB won't have a problem!

Qatar

Would it be too late for Qatar to announce a Dublin route for S14?

@LAX LHR, no prizes for who ever is in the top 10.

Tim Clarke of Emirates just said they are going to double the number of flights on the DXB-DUB route.

EK second daily

Yes, but it's quite vague - no info on timing, frequency, type or when it's starting. uspect it was just a preliminary announcement as Enda of Arabia was visiting.

Still, good to have the commitment that it is starting.

I think it is probably too late to make an announcement for 2014. Can't help but think that EK's announcement was a message to QR: stay away from DUB ... although I do hope they start. Maybe cargo as well as/instead of pax?

Think they will start as well.
Majority of people will not have 2014 flights booked anyway so a mid year start is easily done.

788 would be perfect too. Relatively low risk due lower fuel costs and less capacity.

Not sure about cargo. The reason Emirates are doing so well is they took most of the cargo contracts that used to go through Heathrow with EI/Cathay. With daily 3x777W and a 332 or 4x777W between the other ME airlines, I wonder how much profit is there left? But I hope the market is there and they start a service

I would of thought for a peak S14 launch it would be too late for a long/haul carrier, great news about the second daily Emirates service!

Elsewhere, Dublin-Helsinki has been dropped by Aer Lingus.

Final passenger numbers for 2013 were 20.2 million up 6% according to the DAA who are also rebating 5.6 million in charges to 40 airlines who grew traffic.

Some of the carriers to benefit were: Aer Arann, Aer Lingus, American Airlines, British Airways, Delta, Lufthansa, Norwegian, Turkish Airlines, Ryanair, SAS, Tarom, and United.

The daa have extended the scheme by 3 more years to 2016. Last year saw the highest pay out of the 3 years it's being active.

Transatlantic traffic reached 1.9 million up from the 1.8 million estimate back in August.

Emirates said it has carried 442,000 pax and 22,000 tons of cargo since 9 Jan 2012 on its DUB-DXB service. Second daily service starts Sep 2014. Rumour has it Mr Clark said Dublin would get a dedicated Emirates lounge but Enda thought it was a second daily flight so they went along with it to keep him happy hoping he'll have forgotten about it by September.

Brilliant year for Dublin, 2014 should pass 21m easily. Would it be plausible to think Dublin could go through 25m passengers PA before the end of this decade?

In another year or two dub will easily go through 23 million pax plus after Cork has been bled dry of her remaining passengers.

Whichever one it is its good news but note a lot of online sites saying that a 777LR would do the second flight, which is more less the same as the 332 in capacity.


Good traffic figures overall and 550,000 transfer pax up 36% in a year. Didn't expect a figure like but heard that much higher numbers are transferring to Europe than the UK.

EY v EK

Interesting timings for EK pm service as EY have also a pm service four evenings a week and might go to more, as in T2 they both use same stand and checking areas , plenty room there in the evenings but certainly changes coming and
EK do need a dedicated lounge as offer F class as well as business class,
Competition hotting up on ME ! Makes me think no room for QR now?

Comparable size to Manchester which has all three, as the economy recovers you might see QR join the party.

Cannot compare purely on size. Dublin has always traditionally been stronger going west due to immigrant populations in the US, Manchester going east due to the Asian subcontinent populations, and more recently, growing Chinese populations.

Yes, west is broadly correct, but if we look at Australia alone let us not forget 1.8 million reported Irish ancestry in their 2006 census. 40,000 moved to Australia in 2011/12 and 50,000 holiday makers and backpackers from Ireland visit each year. Community ties are strong here and that generates a substantial amount of two-way traffic which Emirates and the unmentionable are serving. On the exports front emerging Asia with China are set to overtake France. In a short time our main export destinations will be UK, USA, Germany, China.
