Vision for airport is totally wrong

Paul O'Kane, public affairs director of the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA), has things the wrong way around when he says that Terminal 2 will allow the airport to handle "upwards of 30 million passengers" (Letters, October 21).

In fact, the Fingal County Council Local Area Plan makes it clear that T2 "will bring the capacity of the existing and proposed passenger handling facilities on the Eastern Campus to approximately 30 million passengers per annum. Terminal facilities to cater for further demand will be provided on the Western Campus."

He also protests that in one study, "operating costs per passenger were the second-lowest of comparator airports".
