Minister publishes policy statement on airport charges


The Minister for Transport, Sport and Tourism Shane Ross, T.D. has today published a Policy Statement on Airport Charges. This Policy Statement sets out revised Government policy on how airport charges are regulated for Dublin Airport. 
Speaking on the matter the Minister said: “I am delighted the Government has agreed to reform how prices are set at Dublin Airport, placing consumers’ interests first. Dublin Airport is vital for tourism and trade, and it is also instrumental in securing investment. This revision of airport charges – on foot of a commitment made in the Government’s A National Aviation Policy for Ireland, 2015 – strengthens the hand of the Commission for Aviation Regulation in pursuing its goal to protect the interests of the airport’s customers – including business people and tourists.
Under the regulatory oversight of the Commission for Aviation Regulation, and with the support of Ryanair and Aer Lingus in particular, Dublin Airport is now a highly connected modern international airport.  The new price regime will build on that progress but, importantly, it will place the consumers’ interests firmly ahead of the ambitions of a state utility.”
