Some locals opposed to a second runway at Dublin Airport have been offered payments to leave their homes under a voluntary scheme put in place by the company.
Those who qualify for the scheme live near the proposed €320m project.
It is understood that the Dublin Airport Authority will award the contract to build the second runway in the next few weeks.
Business journalist Vincent Wall said that the second runway is not the only investment the group is planning.
This is to in turn enable the airport to process up to 40 million passengers per year, up from its current 30 million passengers per year.
