About Dublin Airport
The first plane took off from Dublin Airport in 1940 and was flying to Liverpool. Services, however, were cut back during World War II and it was not until the 1950s that serious growth occurred, with the first trans-Atlantic route starting in 1958.
Dublin Airport is now one of Europe’s top 10 busiest airports. With two terminals and two runways, it operates 175 routes to Europe, North America and the Middle East, with the most popular destinations being London, Paris and New York.
