Last Sunday afternoon I was in the makeshift terminal at DUB having just got off a Ryanair flight and I saw an Aer Arann ATR42 landing on Rwy 29. I have never seen this runway used before does anyone know if this is a common occurrence or just a once off?
P.s. 10 was the active runway that afternoon so it also landed with the wind.

Runway 29 is indeed now being used by private jets and Aer Arann, along with the usual GA traffic. It remains too short for larger jets however. Using 29 allows for more capacity to be released on runway 28.

Quoting Bazzaldonbond (Reply 2): Confirm 10 in use and it landed 29 completely impossible so i guess it was 11 it landed on . Max Bae146-300 size aircraft can use it
Thats what I saw and the active hadn't changed either cause when I was on the M50 there was still aircraft taking off from 10. I guess if the wind is calm the pilot would have a choice if its not too busy. Remember it was Sunday afternoon so there wasn't much traffic.
