Ireland’s Dublin Airport has revealed plans to invest €10m in revamping the airport’s arrivals hall, as well as the facade of Terminal One.

The renovation project will add a replacement ceiling, new flooring, a new appearance for the 44-year-old Terminal One, and the removal of desks placed in some window areas.

The revamp will modernise the arrivals hall, making it brighter and more spacious.

The hall’s floor layout is expected to be made more user-friendly, with restaurants placed in one area and other passenger services, including the tourist information office and desk, located in another.

The floor of the airport’s arrivals hall is already being replaced.

Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said: "We are upgrading Terminal One on a phased basis and we have already enhanced the departures floor.

"We are now turning our attention to the arrivals hall. Our goal is to greatly improve the overall look and feel for our customers."

"We are confident that, when completed, the renovations will significantly enhance the ambience in that area."

Under the project, the screens currently located in front of the arrivals hall’s exit doors will be removed, allowing passengers to meet their friends and family as they come through from the baggage hall.

Harrison added: "We are confident that, when completed, the renovations will significantly enhance the ambience in that area."

The project is expected to be completed over the coming months.

Recently, Dublin Airport has also finalised its plans to build a new €320m runway.

The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) aims to install the 3,110m-long runway by 2020.
