Minister for Transport said today that a new route to Russia and Canada will be announced soon.

So its SU to Moscow and not in 2014 as was stated elsewhere and believed that Air Canada's new loco will take over Dublin year round which they have said a number of times recently in press releases or could it be EI although they would need another aircraft.

US Pre clearance closes in DUB earlier than SNN so i doubt we'll see the BA LCY services at DUB unless they open later ( which i very much doubt).

Just looking the other day from airside at that old terminal building at DUB. It looks really scruffy ugly on the outside and is in dire need of a dash of paint. Is it actually being used for something or is it a complete waste of space and will just sit there forever preventing any further redevelopment in that area?

BA will not be operating 8 daily LHR flights. Its now showing as 7 daily Sun-Thu, 6 on Fri and 5 on Sat. However more have being changed from an A319 to A320 including the two morning flights from DUB.

Iberia Express have confirmed there winter schedule and MAD is 4 weekly. Increase in seat from last year as it was CRJ.

i believe the 8th rotation is still on the cards but not as yet released with the possiblility of further increase in new year.
But like all things aviation when it happens it will happen!

Industrial action at DUB

SIPTU serves notice of industrial action on DAA - RT News

SIPTU leader Jack O'Connor said that this was a unique situation where the row was not the fault of Aer Lingus, the DAA or the unions, but that the blame lay with the Pensions Regulator.

So his answer is to set out to greatly inconvenience the blameless as well as the travelling public, tourists and anyone else who has to fly to make a living.
Hundreds of thousands of people have similar problems with their pension schemes and have to live with it.
If these shysters go on strike sack them all and bring in the unemployed who are just waiting for an opportunity to start doing an honest day's work again with or without a pension.

Ground floor is used for non-contact gates; generally only Aer Lingus Regional these days. Was in a mess last time I flew out of there as it was being refurbished inside, the extremely limited food outlets shut and so on.

You can easily take a look if flying out of Pier A - just head back towards passport control, I can't remember the gate numbers it uses though.

I believe the upper floors are used as offices; and the original second terminal, the North Terminal (from before the current Terminal 1 was built) is used as the Garda station and offices for cargo handlers I think. The DAA have no qualms in asking for buildings to be de-listed if they get in the way, just look at what happened to Corballis House!

Thanks for your reply, Cian.
Pity the DAA didn't delist it before Pier D was built. Could have knocked a quarter of a mile off the walk out to it.

Indeed showing from March. There is a large increase in capacity between DUB-London from October so not suprising it was dropped for now.

Over 2 million passengers in August up 2%

Europe 1.1 million up 2.5%
UK 635,000 down 3%
Middle East/Africa 47,000 up 78%
Transatlantic 193,000 up 4%
Domestic 7,000 down 21% (FR were operating ORK until October 2011)

Year to date almost 13 million level on 2011

Latest News > Over 2m Passengers Use Dublin Airport In August

Cityjet

Is there a chance that we could see Cityjet taking on the Luxembourg route which was left by Luxair ?
