Dublin Airport receives 20 millionth passenger this year

Passenger number 20,000,000 this year has walked into the Arrivals Hall at Dublin Airport.

Roma Chang from Donaghmore, County Tyrone, landed at just before 10am this morning on a United Airlines flight from Washington.

She was greeted with flowers, champagne and a holiday gift voucher for €3,000.

Siobhan O'Donnell, Communications Manager with Dublin Airport said it is a significant milestone.

"This is the first time that we've exceeded the 20 million number of passengers in one year [since] 2009", she said. "So it's great to be able to mark it today."
