You will not save anything by closing one.

Almost all 3,500 staff are now on a 4 day week from a 10 days ago until end of June, blanket pay cut of 20% (apart from fire, police I believe). Government scheme will cover 25% of wage bill until end of June not up to 80% that many other companies can avail of. Seasonal staff contacts have likely been terminated to.

Are the terminals serviced with free electricity and water? It makes sense from an economic, if not environmental perspective to close one.

Of course it would.

I'm puzzled by this 14 day quarantine on arriving passengers rule. If I fly in from Malta (5 Covid deaths) I must quarantine for 14 days. If I arrive in from the UK (most deaths in Europe at 31,587) I don't have to quarantine, what is the logic in that?

Are the UK exempt? Last I read, the Government advised against all overseas travel, and those returning from overseas must quarantine. I haven’t seen anything saying Britain is exempt, although there’s no restrictions between ourselves and the north unfortunately.

Sky News report: “Airlines UK, the trade body for UK registered airlines, has confirmed to Sky News that the move will be introduced by the government for anyone arriving into the UK other than from Ireland, to ease the spread of COVID-19.’

What I meant was are UK citizens exempt from quarantining for 14 days in Ireland, and according to the RTE news tonight, the answer is no. Irish citizens arriving in say London are exempt from quarantine restrictions, but UK citizens arriving in Dublin are not exempt from the Irish 14 day restriction.

Thank you for correcting my understanding. I appreciate it.

Being pedantic, it's residents, not citizens.

The proposal was for an Irish 'bubble' - anyone from the island could travel freely within the island. If my understanding is correct - anyone from great Britain has to quarantine. Anyone from Northern Ireland doesn't.

The UK doesn't want a Great Britain bubble for all the political chaos that that will bring.

Amazingly, Corona doesn't travel by ferry. It's only an airport quarantine.

I believe you are correct. Also, those travelling from Britain via ROI en route to NI face no restrictions.

Of course not but if they close T1 they are not going to switch off the lights.

There is no real savings closing a terminal. Now there is certain parts of the airport where passengers are not using for flights.

Not watched but can almost guarantee 14 days quarantine won't apply to British and I can see others added. UK have sane agreement made in principal with France. Considering "lock down" cannot be enforced how do either country expect to enforce this.

To little to late from both countries, now had both followed Eastern Europe things would be different...

The Irish Times (16th May) looks at the nearlly empty Dublin Airport terminals


In the airport control room, the smell of disinfectant is strong. There are just three people on duty. The CCTV screens are empty and the real-time computer-generated map recording all airport movement is still.

No, UK citizens and passengers from Britain are not exempt, they must quarantine for 14 days, as must all passangers including Irish nationals returning from abroad. The only execption are indiviiduals travelling from Britain and going directly to NI who can travel from the airport/port and cross the border.

From RTÉ, 15th May

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has revealed that a 14 day quarantine period will be mandatory for all passengers arriving at Irish ports and airports.

If you travel to RoI from ANYWHERE except NI, by any means (ferry/air), you are supposed to fill in a form which gives the address at which you will quarantine yourself for 14 days. Compliance was reported to be only around 65%, so I understand that they are tightening up on this. No exemptions for travellers from the UK, whether UK-resident or not. A friend who came in from the UK via ferry was contacted after a couple of days to check up on him.
