A spokesperson for Dublin Airport said: “unfortunately, we failed to meet the regulator’s security queue target of 30 minutes on four occasions last year. We sincerely regret that as Dublin Airport’s aim is always to offer our customers the type of quality travel experience that they expect. We continue to strive to improve the product that we offer to our customers across the business.”
