Ibec welcomes the Aer Lingus publication today by consultants EY of an economic assessment of Dublin Airport as an international hub. Ibec agrees that the potential over the next 15 years in terms of jobs, Exchequer revenues and GDP growth is huge. Ibec has previously highlighted the need for a capacity upgrade at our airports as regional and national priorities.
Ibec CEO Danny McCoy said: “The expansion of runway capacity, consistent with international best standards in noise management, is essential. There is also a need for substantial investment in piers and aircraft stands”.
