Who would buy them though, hopefully not the same idiots that own BFS. And surely not BAA!

I've heard MAG Airports are a potential buyer for Cork, any one else heard this?

Over 1.4 million passengers through Dublin in March down 3% on 2010.

Late Easter hoildays and sharp fall in domestic traffic.
Jan down 60%
Feb down 72%
Mar down 68%


So far this year over 3.8 million. 2% decline on 2010.

Not too bad as April should show a large increase than last year as the ash cloud closed Dublin for a week any news on Cork or Shannon?

I am actually surprised that the DUB figures are not worse. I hope that this summer sees the start of some growth again and keeps our jobs in it a little more secure no matter who we work for!

I see that Emirates regularly fly their A380 into Man, do they ever use it when flying to Dub?

Emirates does not fly to Dublin, and even if the did, DUB is not A380-capable. So no.

Oops my bad... confused Ethiad with them. Guess when their A380's arrive we won't be capable then either. Ah well...

Even if DUB could handle the A380 then I don't think Eithad would use it on the route as they currently service some of there A330 aircraft at there maintence base here in Dublin.

Dub is certified for A380. It is an Air France diversion station for the A380. One stand in T2 is designated for use in an emergency.

I didn't know that. Are any other airports in Ireland similarly designated? I presume Shannon.

That said, an emergency diversion airport is somewhat different from being an operational destination from which an economical pax and cargo load plus long haul fuel can be lifted off the runway.

It could land at Shannon but there are no stands suitable for it

Does anyone know why the sunwing service has been cancelled? is it all their long haul plans?

or was Air canada and Transat too much competition?

It's just Dublin which has being canceled.

Varadkar: I'll keep travel tax if airlines don't open new routes - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

Main Points:
Part-Privatisation of ORK and SNN so they can be independent of DUB
But he says Cork and Shannon are losing a lot of money and Dublin is carrying an enormous debt from Terminal 2.
Mr Varadkar said an option is to part-privatise Cork and Shannon to avoid lumping their debts on to Dublin and give them independence.
Travel Tax - scrapped in next months budget if agreement can be reached.
Aer Lingus talks going well
Ryanair "Want it all there own way"
New routes must be aimed at tourists and not Bucket and Spade routes.
Deal on airport charges to be looked at
Tax would return in airlines don't open new routes

I have no idea what new routes Aer Lingus can bring to Dublin which are not already served, but they could bring some to Cork.

The huff and puff strategy employed by FR can-not be sustained... they're cutting routes everywhere as they don't get their own way! I'd like to see some Scandinavian routes, where people still have disposable income.

If FR don't take the opportunity then I'd like to see DUB attracting more routes from Norwegian Air Shuttle,

Would love to see us develop our relationship with Singapore airlines as well. Moving from just cargo to at least one or two scheduled services a week. Could attract the Australian tourist. I know this is most pie in the sky though.

NorthernCounties, Singapore Cargo stopped serving Dublin quite some time ago now.

PAX must walk from T2 with baggage, under partial cover from the elements and cross roads to reach T1 where they can board a bus? Seemingly a bus can drop off at T2 but can't pick up. Does anyone know if this a temporary inconvenience or is it a design fault?
