Dublin Airport is set to have its busiest weekend of 2021 so far with more than 224,000 passengers expected.
More than 1,587 flights will arrive and depart during the October bank holiday.
However, passenger numbers this weekend are still expected to decline 42% compared to the same period in 2019.
Dublin Airport issued tips for travelers this weekend to « ensure a smoother flight ».
A spokesperson said: « Passengers are strongly advised to prepare for security in advance and go directly to the security check-in area once they have checked in.
Passengers are advised to check which station their flight departs from before leaving home.
They also said that passengers should arrive at the terminal two hours before departure for short trips and three hours before for long-haul flights.
Travelers with children are required to use the family corridors available in the security screening area.
Dublin Airport has also reminded passengers of the regulations on liquids.
They said: “Please remember that EU security regulations state that liquids over 100ml cannot be brought through the security screening area.
Liquids less than 100ml are permitted and must be placed in a clear, re-sealable bag no larger than 20cm x 20cm.
« There are exceptions for medicines and baby food. »
DAA Group Chief Communications Officer, Kevin Cullinan, said: “We expect an average of more than 56,000 passengers per day over the four days between Friday October 22 and Monday October 25 2021.
« Friday bank holiday will be the busiest weekend of the week, with 61,000 passengers and 428 planes arriving and departing in one day. »
