Dublin Airport Ready To Welcome 30,000 Europa League Fans

Dublin Airport is set to welcome up to 30,000 football fans over the next two days ahead of the Europa League Final in Dublin on Wednesday evening.

 

Around 20,000 fans of the two finalists – Atalanta and Bayer Leverkusen – are set to fly into Dublin Airport over the coming 48 hours, with a further 10,000 attendees also expected to arrive for the showpiece event from more than 20 countries around the world.

 

According to Dublin Airport Managing Director Gary McLean: “This is a very exciting week for Dublin Airport as we welcome football fans from all over the world to Ireland for one of the world’s biggest football matches. Hosting big matches like this helps put Ireland on the map and the Dublin Airport team is proud to be playing a key role in facilitating the arrival and departure of up to 30,000 fans. A huge amount of planning, over many months, has gone into this game and, while we can’t guarantee a positive result for both sets of fans, we look forward to providing them with a smooth and enjoyable journey in and out of Ireland.”

 

A number of dedicated staff will be present in both terminals at Dublin Airport over the coming days to help fans on their way.

 

Free transport into Dublin city centre is also being provided to fans of both teams from dedicated fan areas at Dublin Airport.
