This chapter sets out the various long-term forecasts for Dublin Airport to 2050 and the capacity constraints associated with these forecasts based on the Oxford Economics Review commissioned by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS), ‘Review of Future Capacity Needs at Ireland’s State Airports’, (August 2018). Specifically, the DTTAS Review sets out the baseline and accompanying upside and downside forecasts for passenger, aircraft movement and cargo volumes at Dublin Airport to 2050 and identifies the key capacity issues that will be need to be addressed over that period. The DTTAS Review also identifies the short and medium term31 investments that are required to optimise the use of the existing airport infrastructure while principal options for meeting longer term infrastructural capacity needs are also highlighted. This information provides the framework against which to plan for future growth and investment at Dublin Airport. In this context, the latter part of this chapter sets out the existing infrastructure capacity constraints for the LAP period.

  • 31 - Short to Medium term in context of DTTAS Review is up to 2030.
