Astonishing really when you think that the population of the whole if the island of Ireland is under 6m. And that it's not the only Airport that serves them.
Not really, there are many similar examples elsewhere. For instance Singapore an island country with a population of close to 6 million has an airport that handles 62 million.

Singapore is not in any way shape or form comparable to the Island of Ireland. Singapore is a city state, Ireland is a state.

Itís like comparing Portugal with London.

You really can't compare anywhere to Ireland. The closest you'll get is the North Island of New Zealand, where the land area is about 30% bigger, but the population is about 40% lower. But that doesn't have anywhere as heavily-populated as Europe on its doorstep, nor is it split between two states.

For what it's worth, Auckland handles about 20 million passengers, while a fairly sizable airport also exists in Wellington, which handles 6 million. They are about 600km apart though, so it's more like Cork Airport to City of Derry than Dublin to Belfast.

Sorry, don't see that SIN is a similar example. It's a fairly major long, medium and short-haul hub with one of the world's major long haul carriers based.

The only similarity is that a large Airport succeeds in a Country that has a much smaller domestic population than it's annual throughput. As you say, the same could be said of many.

Anyway, was just trying to be positive about what's been achieved at DUB.

No more strings to pull ...

Sadly, it appears that Cello Aviation has ceased trading today.

Apparently there’s been an update ADD-DUB-LAX will continue now as well as the new ADD-MAD-DUB flights, the LAX flight now becoming another pit stopper.

Yeah, it appears theyíre just no longer picking up pax in DUB in either direction on the LAX flight and are instead routing Irish pax to ADD via MAD. Serious downgrade in convenience for those heading to Africa, ADD got you pretty much anywhere in one stop, now itís 2.

Was the whole point of the operation to be just fuel stops.

The fuel stop deal was agreed after they applied and were granted the rights to ADD-DUB-LAX. Not a total surprise its gone poor timings, little brand awareness and most importantly Aer Lingus came back onto LAX as they started.

The LAX route won't be via Dublin at all. It will route via Togo instead.

But when the changes were originally announced it was to still go Via DUB.

So with LH adding another MUC flight & AC upgauging, who do we think will be the next to add either frequencies or a new flight?

Pity to see them end that route, but when you've got to go, you've got Togo.

Good that they'll be sticking with DUB and having a one stop via MAD; I think that there is considerable potential for traffic from Dublin to Africa, so hopefully in time, this can become a nonstop again.
