The development of a third terminal at Dublin Airport is not needed at this time, trade unions have maintained.
In a submission to the new review of future capacity requirements at the country’s airports, the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (Ictu) argued that the projected growth in passenger numbers at Dublin Airport could be accommodated by the expansion and reconfiguration of the existing two terminals.
