Passengers rejoice as Dublin Airport reopens Terminal 1 drop off zone

Dublin Airport has announced that passengers can be dropped off directly in front of Terminal 1 again from 10am this morning.

The T1 “Departures Road” is reopening as the Airports Authority (DAA) continues its “phase-out of emergency procedures” put in place over the summer.

With passenger numbers rising as air traffic returned to full capacity for the first time since the pandemic began, the DAA had to implement a series of measures in June to deal with lengthy airport delays.

Over the weekend of May 28-29, 1,000 people missed flights, while thousands more experienced lengthy delays due to significant queues at airline check-in, baggage drop and security.

The DAA was forced to close the T1 departure road during this time, while the Defense Forces were placed on standby in July if a nationwide spike in Covid-19 cases affected staffing levels at the airport.

In a statement released this morning, DAA said further changes are planned, as well as the reopening of the T1 Departures Road.

“Passenger disembarkation directly in front of Terminal 1 will be possible again from 10 a.m. this morning when we reopen the departure road,” DAA announced on Twitter.

“This is part of a further phased dismantling of contingency measures put in place at Dublin Airport over the summer.

“Further changes, including the return of bus drop-offs and pick-ups to the regular area behind the atrium, will follow in the coming days. Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates. We thank passengers for their patience while we make these changes.”
