Travel chaos at Dublin airport as passengers miss flights due to delays

Passengers at Dublin airport have experienced huge delays, leading to some missing their flights over the weekend.

The DAA has apologised after passengers at Dublin Airport were hit with lengthy queues on Sunday morning.

Some passengers reported waiting in line at security screening for almost two hours while others complained about missing flights.

It comes as passenger numbers passing through the airport continue to increase following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions on international travel last month.

The DAA earlier said that Dublin Airport “is experiencing lengthy queues for security screening this [Sunday] morning.

“Additional resources have been deployed to the area and we expect the situation to ease shortly.

“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience,” they said, adding that their teams were working hard to assist passengers.

One Twitter user posted: “Missed my flight this morning on account of the obscene overcrowding and delays in security, I was in the queue when it was advertised as a 35 minute wait this later changed to 45. I finally got through after 1 hour and 20 mins but my gate had closed.

“There was four security desks open at this time which was well below what it should have been for the number of outbound flights in T1. I’m now out of pocket for missing my flight despite showing up as per DAA recommendations 2 hours in advance,” they added.
