The project comprises the delivery of the Dublin Airport Capital Investment Plan. It consists of a number of infrastructure enhancements at Dublin Airport, designed to: increase operational and commercial resilience, ensure that the highest levels of aviation safety and security are preserved and improve the passenger experience through facility improvements. Major works include the structural overlay and rehabilitation of the airport's existing main and secondary runways, the upgrade of the baggage screening system, the expansion and rehabilitation of aircraft parking stands and a range of improvements to the terminal buildings and the construction of landside office space.
The project will allow the promoter to introduce new baggage screening at the airport and also to improve the operational resilience as a result of the upgrade of existing infrastructure, simplification of airside flows, increase in aircraft parking stands and construction of a parallel taxiway. Overall, the project will significantly improve passenger service standards.
