Marketing and other support
Dublin Airport has, for many years, been to the forefront in sharing opportunities with airlines and encouraging new routes into and out of the airport. Central to the airport’s approach is the provision of high quality market intelligence, insightful views of the market and a willingness to offer incentives.
The airport has introduced very extensive schemes for new long and short haul routes. A Marketing Support scheme is also available to help in the formative years of launch. In addition to these incentives the DAA has also introduced a new Transfer incentive scheme. All of these are available and more.
