The Irish Aviation Authority announced commercial terminal traffic for Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports increased significantly by 3.3% in January 2013, when compared to January 2012. This growth in international arrivals and departures was largely driven by traffic increases in Dublin Airport. This is the sixth month in a row that the Authority has observed continued growth in this sector of traffic.

The January 2013 figures for the three State airports, when compared to the same month in the previous year are:

Cork Airport: - 1.4%, with an average of 49 commercial daily movements.

Dublin Airport: + 5.6%, with an average of 381 daily commercial movements.

Shannon Airport: -10.7% with an average of 37 commercial daily movements.

There was a marginal decrease of 1.60% in Ireland’s en route traffic movements (flights that pass through Irish airspace but do not land) during January 2013, in comparison to January 2012.  In the North Atlantic Communications area (Europe /North America flights) saw a decrease of 1.24% in January 2013, when compared to January 2012.

Total flights in Irish airspace have decreased marginally by 1.10%, when compared to January 2012.There was an average of 1,187 daily flights during January 2013.
