A new terminal has been opened at Dublin Airport, allowing it to handle 15M more passengers a year. The airport’s £513M, 75,000m² Terminal 2 was opened by Taoiseach Brian Cowen last week.
The three storey terminal’s steel and glass façade has been designed to use natural light in passenger areas.
It also houses a new pre-clearance security facility that will allow passengers on United States-bound flights to clear all American customs, immigration and security checks before leaving Ireland. Construction manager on the three year project was Mace. Arup was the designer and client was the Dublin Airport Authority.
