Dublin Airport remains comfortably ahead of pre-pandemic movement numbers as we get deeper into the Summer 2023 season.

Using data from RadarBox.com, we will see how the airport is performing and what the rest of the Summer could look like.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Dublin Airport’s Numbers Remain Solid…

For June 13-20, the airport handled 757 movements, which represents an increase of 6.32% compared to the same period, where 712 movements were recorded.

In comparison to 2019 levels, they are ahead by around 12 movements, with this expected to rise week-on-week gradually.

Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data from Dublin Airport:

Date2019 Numbers2022 Numbers2023 NumbersPercentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)
May 16-23716 movements675 movements752 movements+11.41%

May 30-June 6720 movements713 movements750 movements+5.19%
June 6-13741 movements698 movements748 movements+7.16%

What is clear from the data is that Dublin Airport is comfortable with exceeding pre-pandemic figures. With the utilization of the second runway this is expected to boost numbers further going into the future.

All eyes are on the airport to see how much further they can take these numbers, especially with us being a few weeks away from the July school holidays peak.

Providing that enough flights operate, Dublin Airport could definitely get itself into the 800 weekly movement average.

Other factors, such as the French ATC strikes, could put this in jeopardy as they continue their unionized action.

All eyes are on the Irish capital.
