Ireland’s Dublin Airport is set to replace the departures floor in its Terminal 1 (T1) as part of a €10m upgrade project.

Tiles installed at the airport during its opening in 1972 will be replaced as part of the project.

Furthermore, new wooden tiles and fascia will be added to walls, and existing ticket desks will be removed to make room for more light and space in the arrivals hall.

"This new, brighter floor tile will significantly improve the look and feel of the Departures area."

Dublin Airport Managing director Vincent Harrison said: “Terminal 1 is 44 years old and has welcomed over 400 million passengers during that time.

“This new, brighter floor tile will significantly improve the look and feel of the Departures area.

“With the Arrivals Hall upgrade well under way, our goal is to create a greatly enhanced passenger experience for all our customers travelling through Terminal 1.”

As well as offering limited access through Departures door one, the project will witness phased temporary closure and replacement of facilities.

The first phase of the work has already begun and several airline check-in and ticket desks have been closed.

Following the completion of the T1 upgrade, restaurants and various other services, including bus, travel and information desks, will be located together.

During the first eight months of 2016, Dublin Airport received more than 18.8 million passengers, witnessing a 12% growth compared to the same period last year.

The airport currently offers direct flight access to more than 180 destinations in 40 countries.
