Thanks, seems to be the same inconvenient location, behind the Multi-Story car park and the Church, as previously proposed.
No suggestion of any underground passage way into either Terminal for safety and weather protection.

Anyone know why EI are playing musical chairs with the ORK-based aircraft so much lately. EI-DVJ is the latest to randomly have spent a night in DUB last night, before switching back to ORK this morning. Whatever they're doing is causing delays, as last night's Malaga flight left 2 hours late to accomodate EI-DVJ going back to DUB. EI-DVG had a similar episode last week.

On re-examining the plans, one diagram seems to show access to the Metro Station in front of the car park
The other one shows it behind the car park and church.

Like much of our transport planning, it remains a mystery.

Interesting read from the Irish Times most we already know but she also touches on Dublin Airports recent Twitter "come back" but at a time when tempers are flared they may need to be a bit more contrite.

Aer Lingus have been using the A330 on the DUB-BCN route multiple times in the last few weeks. Does anyone know what might be the reason for this increase?

I assume there will be multiple exit/entry points. The position of the underground station doesn't necessarily indicate the entry points. I'm assuming if it has tunneled under the runway and terminals it may be at quite a depth, so could be multiple escalators to ground level.

I'm not sure an underground passage would be that useful, you will need to come up eventually anyway. A covered or enclosed walkway to the terminals would be a lot more cost effective.

As for connectivity, I think this proposal does quite well.... connects with:
DART West and DART South West at Glasnevin
DART Coastal and Wexford line at Tara Street
Luas Green at Charlemont

As someone stated above, this shouldn't be thought of as an airport metro, it is a public transport solution for vast swathes of north Dublin currently unconnected to the rail network.

It's not shown in a design, but an underground passage to the terminal is documented on page 33 as a concern.

I spotted this too. Maybe to recover canx flights?

Speaking of EI A330s, I'm finally booked on one to AGP next month. Excited to finally fly on one!

I don't think SOU is long for this world.

They want £289 for a return on the few days they will still fly it! Aer Lingus wants £74. Even Eastern, at £126 is a steal. They're clearly not in the business of selling tickets on that route.

Sale of Dublin Airport car park cleared for take-off at €70m
Former Quickpark has 6,122 long-stay spaces and is only privately-owned car park permitted to serve the airport

https://www.irishtimes.com/property/com ... ff-at-70m/

Hopefully any buyer will reopen it asap unless any office development causes issues with it . Parking fully booked at DUB this weekend .

Let them develop offices so long as a massive multi-storey parkhouse is built too
This place near Frankfurt Airport has 2100 spaces on a very compact site which googlemaps tells me has a footprint of about 10,000 sq metres.

It could also very much indicate that £289 tickets are all that is left, with the cheaper fares already booked

They used to be a decent well respected operation in the 90's. Jersey European / British European . It all went wrong when they tried to deviate from their core bread and butter and try to be something they could never achieve.

I remember them at the old Belfast Harbour Airport ( Old Terminal ) . The 146's to LGW they had business class and a hot breakfast . A decent lounge too with a small but fair FF program.

Flybe brings back memories of outrageous pricing even when aircraft were half empty . Missed connections and business meetings due to their unreliable operation and ripping of customers with tricky cabin bag rules designed to catch people out .

The new 2.0 is sadly living up to its previous relative. Im just hoping Aer Lingus stick with BHD - SOU for the long term as its badly needed a stable reliable service .

I heard DUB - SOU is on the cards with EI too which would be great news .

Would UA reconsider SFO-DUB perhaps? The route was supposed to be launched, but was pulled from reservations. UA has resumed many routes with sizeable tech demand as of right now. Don't know how the tech market is, but just wondering how things are.

Same happened to me when I missed my connection in GLA last Friday. My bag is missing and I have no idea where it is, nor have I been given a tracking number when I reported it when I got to Sydney. There's no way I am going to see it again until I get back to Dublin.

A nugget of trivia: EI used to fly DUB-SNN-BWI in the early 2000s (initially launched in summer 2000 and was on and off until about 2004 when it was permanently cut). They used the same flight numbers as today's DUB-IAD (EI119/EI118).

Perhaps 'not likely', but not definitive, and the cancellations are the result of non/late delivery of aircraft as expected.

I was thinking the same...they've had a rocky history in the North; can't seem to decide what Belfast airport they want, love making dramatic announcements about leaving NI (then a few weeks later adding back a few token routes from LDY) etc.

Thought BHD not BFS was the airport of choice.
And I’m sure all those routes are very capable of 737 ops without any penalty.

They originally started at BHD but had weight limits to some Euro destinations due to the runway length so they moved to BFS. Then they pulled out altogether and last year they decided on a split operation between the two before leaving again.

They have always been successful, in and of itself, in Belfast but, not unusually, keep demanding special treatment. I'm not altogether sure though what you mean by "perfect for the market"

To be fair, independent regional is a tough, unforgiving business model at the best of times. There's not a lot of room for error.

I feel their problem is that the space has been occupied since the demise of old Flybe. They're just not needed any more. And they're not offering anything compelling to entice people to switch.

EA are not done with fleet growth so I'm sure we will see some more routes being added from them. DUB-SOU wouldn't surprise me one bit.

The 'let's blame the lessors' story just doesn't add up. While it might justify dropping the new routes due to start in August, I can't see how that would explain cutting back the existing UK regional network to the bone. Pretty much everything, apart from LHR, AMS, and the random summer seasonal routes to France has been gutted. They don't need any of these supposedly delayed aircraft to operate that.

I suspect G-EILA will go back Aer Lingues as EI-ELA
and possibly that A330-200 EI-DAA and EI-DUO will transfer to Aer Lingus UK

Again, perhaps, but equally no story ever usually adds up on a.net....a.net being a.net and the abundance of armchair CEO's. They only view I honestly have on such things is I consider an airline to have more knowledge, and which they do not have to share. You may well be right indeed, or equally at this point, you may not.

I don't think Ryanair actually have had much success in the Belfast market. They had a golden opportunity to fly BFS LGW route when the slots were given to them as part of the approval of IAG takeover of EI. The domestic market sells late and Ryanair can't handle that, they want to sell well in advance and as a result discount incredible to fill seats early on and even up to the day before travel. There pricing model has never been satisfactory for their needs on routes like BFS/LGW, STN to EDI/GLA etc. Given the scarcity of LGW especially at that time, if the BFS LGW route was satisfactory they never would have axed it. My tuppence worth.

BHD is not suitable for a base due to the opening hours and the cost associated with poorer utilisation, equally huge car parking rates make it very difficult as a holiday airport. Belfast market is very seasonal. That all said they went for a different route makeup, with some secondary airports featuring.

They came from SOU with American cruise pax & were apparently originally destined for SNN but with the pro am golf SNN couldn’t handle them.

Seems some of the DUB-ACE-DUB flights are being re organised with Privilege Style taking over and some flights with 2 hours time changes. On some days the EI 779 will now operate
2220/0225.

I was thinking the same...they've had a rocky history in the North; can't seem to decide what Belfast airport they want, love making dramatic announcements about leaving NI (then a few weeks later adding back a few token routes from LDY) etc.


I wonder why Ryanair has not been successful in Belfast in the past, i would have thought that their model would have been perfect for the market.


They have always been successful, in and of itself, in Belfast but, not unusually, keep demanding special treatment. I'm not altogether sure though what you mean by "perfect for the market"


I like the way FR have the organisational flexibility to enter and leave markets so quickly . It’s superb

I suspect they know EasyJets days are numbered so both them and Wizz will go for the kill over the next winter season . Once Easy are gone Wizz will keep out of NI and FR will own the market completely

I don't think there is a shred of evidence that easyJet's days are numbered? They have certainly had some challenges and haven't bounced back in the same way that FR and W6 have. But with such a huge part of their operation being UK-based, I dont think thats surprising.
Wizz might go for another attempt at easyJet, they are pretty undervalued at present, but thats about as dramatic as it would be. I doubt IAG, LH or AF/KL would get regulatory clearance to acquire easyJet either.

Easyjet are right up at the top of the charts with Flybe in the Angst-chart for passengers.
If you aren't offering quality then you have to offer reliability or Customers will look elsewhere.

Nobody needs to buy EasyJet now . They’re essentially worthless . Just let them go under . Pick up the routes for free , the fleets not really worth bothering about and the crew will be looking for jobs . Waste of money to buy EasyJet

And of course BA have lower costs than EasyJet at Gatwick now . EasyJet management really took their eye off the ball big time … I feel sorry for the staff

Risk of Taoiseach getting 'stuck' overseas due to 'intolerable' Government jet
I don't know how it is possible to get potentially stranded in Belguim since it is so well served from Dublin but OK.

The establishment of reliable and flexible capacity for senior government members to travel internationally should not be an issue. Why is this even still being debated in Ireland, over 40 years since the Air Corps' first "government jet" entered service. https://flic.kr/p/22mi6wf
