Passengers facing another shortage of car parking at Dublin Airport this summer – Martin Kenny TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Transport and Communications, Martin Kenny TD, has expressed his disappointment at the decision from the CCPC to block a carpark purchase by daa. 

The CCPC published their decision yesterday citing concern over the potential for a monopoly to develop.
Teachta Kenny said:

“I’m sure many passengers who regularly use the parking facilities in and around the airport will be aware of the difficulties that arose last year. 
“To their credit, daa made sure that passengers were aware of this in the run up to the exceptionally busy summer period.  Nevertheless it caused an additional headache for many passengers that they simply did not need.
“A parking space is a very basic amenity that should be available to passengers.  Many of those I spoke to last year felt unable to rely on the limited transport options to the airport that are currently available.
“This car park had previously been held by a private owner and accounted for almost 20% of the spaces available in the airport locality.  That is a significant asset that will now remain unavailable to passengers and holidaymakers this coming summer.
“One decision in the transport sector invariably has knock-on effects on the wider sector, and this is very much the case here. And yet again, those who will be discommoded most are the passengers.”
