Dublin Airport Security Delays: Ryanair is advising travelers to arrive 3.5 hours in advance due to security delays which are likely to last ‘weeks’.

Ryanair advises customers to arrive at Dubin Airport three and a half hours before departure due to security delays.

The airline said check-in counters, kiosks and baggage drop would also open three and a half hours before departure.

The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) said the delays at security screening were due to staff shortages.

It added that peak hour queues are likely to continue “in the coming weeks” as additional trained security personnel continue to be brought on board.

In a statement released this afternoon, the DAA said: “DAA would like to apologize for the long delays passengers have experienced at Dublin Airport over the past few days.

“We apologize for the stress and inconvenience this has caused, especially to those who have missed a flight as a result.

“We deeply regret that our valued customers have had this experience.”

The DAA said it was taking “immediate action” to address the issues but that those processes are taking several weeks and are taking place against the backdrop of growing passenger numbers at Dublin Airport.

The agency said it had hired 100 additional staff since the beginning of the year, but there have been delays in getting it up and running due to increased checks by security staff before they can start work at the airport.

It added: “These and other factors, including the Covid-related absence, are impacting the time it takes passengers to clear security, particularly at busy times like last weekend.

“Unfortunately, security queues are likely to continue during busy periods in the coming weeks as we continue to bring additional trained security personnel on board.”

In a statement released this afternoon, Ryanair said: “Due to DAA staff shortages at Dublin Airport, passengers should arrive at least 3.5 hours before their scheduled departure time.

“Check-in counters, kiosks and baggage drop open 3.5 hours before departure.

“We apologize to our customers for these unfortunate security delays, which are completely beyond our control.”

However, in its most recent statement, the DAA only advises customers to be at the airport at least two hours before boarding a short-haul flight and three hours before boarding a long-haul flight.

Long queues have been reported at the airport for the past week, with reports of passengers missing flights for waiting so long at security. Some reports describe security check waiting times of 90 minutes.

The Consumer Association (CA) said it had received a number of reports from customers missing flights due to security delays.
