daa Welcomes Announcement On Re-opening Of Non-essential Travel
daa welcomes the Irish Government’s formal announcement of a timeline for the re-opening of non-essential international travel.
Under plans announced this evening by the Taoiseach Micheál Martin T.D. international travel will re-open from July 19.
daa, which is the operator of Dublin and Cork airports – the two largest airports in the State – has been advocating for a clear roadmap for the re-opening of travel for some time.
We will continue to work with our airline customers, Government agencies and other stakeholders in relation to the plans for a more widespread re-opening of air travel.
We will also be working to restore the vital connectivity that Ireland has lost over the past 14 months. The Irish economy, which is one of the most open in the world, is hugely dependent on trade, tourism and foreign direct investment (FDI).
In line with Government guidelines, Dublin and Cork airports remained open throughout the pandemic, facilitating the import and export of essential medical supplies and goods.
Throughout the pandemic, the health and safety of our passengers, and our employees has been daa’s key focus and that continues to be the case.
We look forward to welcoming our customers back shortly. We have missed them as much as they have missed us.
