When was Dublin Airport put into service?

In 1917, during World War I, the town of Collinstown was chosen as a base for the British Royal Flying Corps. By the time it was renamed the Royal Air Force in April 1918, Collinstown Airport was completed for more than 20%. Construction was completed in 1919, the year the Irish War of Independence began. At the end of 1922, the land and buildings in Collinstown were transferred to the Irish Free State. The airport was quickly abandoned and grass grew on the old runways.

In 1936 the Irish Free State Executive Council established a new civilian airline, Aer Lingus, at the military airport Casement Aerodrome in Baldonnel, southwest of Dublin. Deciding that this civilian airport should replace Baldonnel with Dublin aerodrome, the authorities chose the old Collinstown area, which extends to the neighbouring town of Rock and Corballis, as their new base.

Work on the new airport began in 1937, and by the end of 1939, a grass airport surface, interior roads, parking lots, electrical and lighting facilities were completed. The first flight from Dublin to Liverpool took place on January 19, 1940. In August 1938, work began on a new airport terminal building. The terminal building opened in early 1941 and its design was heavily influenced by the layered structure of the luxury ocean liners of that period. The terminal was awarded the Royal Hibernian Institute of Architects’ Triennial Gold Medal in 1942.

Due to World War II, known as the Emergency in Ireland, services at Dublin Airport were severely restricted until the end of 1945. The only international scheduled route operated during this time could be arranged by Aer Lingus to Liverpool.

The end of the war meant the beginning of a major expansion in services at the airport. The Aer Lingus company resumed service in the London town of Croydon in November 1945. In 1947 KLM launched the first European flight from Amsterdam to Dublin. Three new concrete runways were completed in 1948, and after ten years of operation in 1950, the airport welcomed a total of 920.000 passengers.

During the 1950s, Dublin Airport expanded with almost uninterrupted traffic growth. Runway extensions and terminal enhancements were made to cope with the traffic and influx of passengers. New airlines started to serve the airport. Among them were British European Airways, Sabena and BKS.

Intercontinental flights began in 1958

In 1958, Aer Lingus launched a new transatlantic service via Shannon Airport. By the mid-1950s it was a widely recognized fact that the original terminal building was too small to cope with the growing number of passengers. A new North Terminal opened in June 1959. Originally, the plan was for the North Terminal to handle all US and European flights, but instead became the arrival terminal for all the passengers of Dublin Airport and the original passenger terminal was used for departures.

In the 1960s, the number of operators serving continued to increase. In the late 1960s, significant numbers of Boeing 737s, BAC One-Elevens, Boeing 707s and Hawker Siddeley Trident began using the airport regularly. In 1969, the airport managed to serve 1.737.151 passengers. In the 1980s, the fierce competition, especially on the Dublin-London routes, resulted in favour of Dublin Airport, with the number of passengers reaching 5,1 million in 1989. In the same year, a new 2.640 m runway and a state-of-the-art air traffic control center were opened.

With the success of Ireland’s “Celtic Tiger” economy, Dublin Airport grew in the 1990s and 2000s. This demand was driven by increased demand for domestic and international business travel, as well as an increase in domestic tourism, foreign holidaymakers arriving in Ireland, and increased demand for city vacations.

As of 2019, services are provided to 31 intercontinental destinations from Dublin Airport.
