Graham McQueen, DAA Media Relations Manager, said: “All of the weekend will be very busy but this afternoon will be one of the busiest weekends since 2019.

“But we’re in a good position to do that. We make sure we have as many security guards as possible and open as many security gates as possible.

“We encourage people to be there up to three and a half hours before their flight and that will give them ample time to get through security to their flight and on to their desired destination.

“Prepare for things to get busier.”
