The advice for people flying out of Dublin airport changes from today.
The recommendations concern all passengers flying out of the airport in the coming days and weeks.
Passengers have faced lengthy delays through security checks because of a lack of staff with security clearance and the increase in travel following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions.
Passengers due to fly out of @DublinAirport are advised to arrive up to 2.5 hours before the departure of short-haul flights to Europe & UK & up to 3.5 hours for long-haul.
