It's much easier to jump in a car and drive from NI to Dublin than it is MAN to DUB for example.
Indeed and the public transport connections to DUB
are tailored to that too. Take for instance around the border counties you can get from Newry to Dublin Airport every hour 24/7 but trying to get to BFS
from Newry at 2,3,4am to get an 0600/0700 out of BHD
you have no option other than the car.
Always amazes me even in off peak times the amount of cars going down the M1 with Northern cars to DUB
and the amount of people willing to take the journey even for short haul flights let alone long haul. I guess this all adds to BFS
argument that they are being killed by the APD. Even myself I have the option of 3 Airports in around an hour but 90% is out of DUB
account for only 10% .
Another disadvantage for BFS
is no US pre clearance which DUB
of course has.
