Apologies for the delays at Dublin Airport


Sir, – The Irish Air Line Pilots’ Association, and the pilots we represent, would like to apologise for all the stress, the delays and the queuing that passengers at Dublin Airport have experienced so far this summer.

Unfortunately our pilots suffer these delays, due to the inadequate infrastructure at Dublin airport, every day.

When we apologise for the “late arrival of the previous aircraft” it is because that aircraft has had to deal with Dublin’s bottlenecks and cul de sacs on several previous flights.

Dublin Airport Authority knows they are limiting the optimum flight rate by not addressing the deficiencies in the airport’s infrastructure.

Until they address these deficiencies, delays will keep coming and pilots will keep apologising. – Yours etc,



Irish Air Line Pilots’


Dublin Airport, Dublin 11.
