New EU system set to boost Irish air passenger numbers from Monday

Those vaccinated fully or recovered from Covid are able to travel to EU destinations without restrictions with a Digital Covid Certificate

About 22,500 people are expected to come and go through the airport at the start of this week, significantly up on the 14,000 who travelled last Monday and the 12,000 who used the airport each day in the last week of June.

The number of people who used Dublin Airport on July 19th, 2019, stood at 116,163.

Friday looks like being the busiest day at the airport this week with just under 24,000 set to leave Dublin. The number who flew in 2019 was 115,919.

This week, the Republic has started implementing a system to allow those who have been vaccinated fully, or have recovered fully from Covid-19, travel to EU destinations without restrictions as long as they have been issued with a Digital Covid Certificate.

A Dublin Airport spokeswoman said the airport is ready for an increased volume of passengers. Although she urged people to be patient and accept that new regulations would make the airport experience different to what people are used to.
