As a result of security delays at Dubin Airport, Ryanair recommends that clients arrive at the airport three and a half hours before their departure.
Check-in offices, kiosks, and the baggage drop will all be open three and a half hours before aircraft leaves, according to the airline.
Because of a paucity of personnel, the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has said that there are delays at security.
It went on to say that lines are expected to persist during peak hours “in the weeks ahead” as it continues to bring on extra trained security personnel to the ship.
The DAA issued the following statement this afternoon: “The DAA would like to express its regret for the significant delays that travellers have encountered at Dublin Airport in recent days.”
We sincerely apologize for any worry or trouble this has caused, especially to anyone who have missed a flight as a consequence of this.
“We are very sorry that our loyal clients were subjected to this situation.”
Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) said that it is taking “urgent action” to rectify the concerns, but that these procedures might take several weeks and that they are taking place against a background of increasing passenger numbers at Dublin Airport.
It claims to have employed 100 new employees since the beginning of this year, but that they have been unable to begin working at the airport because of heightened security screenings required before they can begin working in the facility.
As the statement continued, “These and other considerations, including Covid-related absenteeism, are having an influence on the amount of time it takes passengers to go through security, especially during peak periods such as the weekend just passed.”
Unfortunately, delays at security are expected to persist during peak hours in the coming weeks as we continue to bring on board extra trained security personnel,” says the airline.
“Due to DAA personnel shortages at Dublin Airport, customers are advised to arrive at least 3.5 hours before their planned departure time,” Ryanair stated in a statement posted this afternoon.
“Check-in counters, self-service kiosks, and baggage drop will be open 3.5 hours before scheduled departure time.
“We sincerely apologize to our clients for the regrettable security delays that have occurred, which were completely beyond our control.”
According to the DAA’s most current statement, consumers should be at the airport at least two hours before a short-haul flight and three hours before a long-haul trip before boarding a long-haul aircraft.
