No site for second terminal yet

July 11, 2005 19:33
The Minister for Transport, Martin Cullen, has confirmed that the Dublin Airport Authority has not yet finalised a site for the second terminal at Dublin Airport.

But he said that he expected consultation with the airlines who would be using the new facility to be completed by late August or early September.

Speaking afer a meeting with the board of the DAA, he dismissed speculation that Aer Lingus might run the new terminal as ‘mischievous’. He said that he was not interested in duopolies, with terminals run by different airlines which would act to the detriment of the paying public.

The Minister added that it would be very disappointing if legal challenges from competitors delayed the terminal development. He also took a sideswipe at airlines operating from Dublin Airport, urging them to open more check-in desks earlier to ease overcrowding.

Mr Cullen also expects business plans for the airports at Dublin, Cork and Shannon by the end of the year at the latest.
