Dublin airport closed this evening 23 December

The Dublin Airport Authority has closed the airport again this evening as a result of the snowfall during the early evening. The airport website reports the following:-

Flight operations were suspended at Dublin Airport from 18.30 as a result of heavy snowfalls.   Snow continued to fall persistently for the following three hours.

Our snow and ice crew are working to clear the runway, taxiway and apron area in time for the first wave of flight arrival and departures tomorrow morning – subject to favourable weather conditions.

A further update will be posted just before 05.00, Friday 24th December, 2010.

Passengers planning to travel tomorrow are advised to contact their airline or airline’s website BEFORE coming to the airport.

With over 600 acres of runway, taxiway and apron area to clear one inch of snow over the airfield equates to more than 15,000 tons of snow to be removed.
