Babies on Board: Dublin Airport opens new baby feeding rooms
July was airport's busiest month
Got a baby on board? Dublin Airport has opened new dedicated baby feeding rooms in both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
The new rooms offer "additional comfort and privacy for parents travelling with babies," the airport says, and were introduced in response to passenger feedback.
The bright and colourful baby feeding stations are equipped with a highchair, comfortable vinyl seating, a microwave and a bottle warmer, it adds.
The family-friendly rooms are located airside (i.e. beyond security screening), beside the retail area in T2, and the food and beverage area in T1.
“The prime locations for the baby feeding rooms means families and groups travelling together will not be separated,” says Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport's Managing Director.
A seating area is available just outside both rooms for travelling companions.
Dublin Airport upgraded several passenger facilities in recent times, including a luxury US Preclearance lounge (in T2), a new 'Marquette' food court (T1), self-service bag drop machines and a €10 million revamp of Terminal 1's facade and Arrivals Hall.
So far this year, more than 16.9 million passengers have travelled through the airport, a 6pc increase compared to the first five months of last year.
Last year, Dublin was found to be the fastest-growing major airport in Europe. This July was its busiest ever month with over 3.1 million passengers.
