Dublin Airports new Covid 19 guidelines from contactless parking to grab and go dining

By Thomas Telford

A number of new Covid 19 measures have been introduced in Dublin Airport to coincide with the return of international travel.

These have been introduced to protect both passengers and airport staff in the age of Covid 19.

These new measures affect the check-in, arrivals and departures areas of Dublin Airport.

Social Distancing

Markers have been placed throughout the airport to advise flyers to maintain a distance between each other and reduce contact.

Hand Sanitiser

Hand sanitiser stations are located throughout the airport and can also be purchased from numerous vending machines.

Security Screening

Plexiglass screens have been installed at close contact points and Dublin Airport is asking passengers to use hand sanitiser and wear masks before entering the security screening area.

All security equipment and trays are regularly disinfected for passenger safety with social distancing floor markings also in effect.

Airport Shopping

To make passengers airport shopping as seamless as possible, the entire experience has been re-organised as well as moving to a fully contactless payment system.

Food and drink

Flyers dining experience at Dublin Airport has also been revamped. Table service and grab and go offers are now available. Contactless payment is encouraged and plexiglass screens are in operation.

Airport Seating

There is reduced seating at boarding gates, as well as at restaurants, pubs and cafes, in order to maintain social distancing. Seats are being prioritised for the elderly, passengers with reduced mobility, pregnant women and families with young children.

Car Parking

Pre-booking online before arrival is highly recommended. Car parks are now contactless from "payments to entry and exit." Social distancing markers have also been placed on the red express car park shuttle buses as well as the bus shelters.
