Ryan welcomes 350 jobs at Dublin Airport
Labour TD Brendan Ryan has welcomed the news that increased passenger traffic in Dublin Airport has led to the creation of 350 new jobs by the DAA.
Deputy Ryan stated: “As a TD for Dublin Fingal, I am pleased by today’s announcement and that it comes on foot of a bumper year for Dublin Airport. The fact that 350 new staff were needed in response to a 15% increase in passenger numbers in 2015 speaks volumes about how far Ireland has come economically.
“The new positions are being created in areas such as security, customer service, and asset management in order to support this passenger growth. I understand recruitment is already underway, with 170 jobs created last year and the remainder of posts to be filled this year.
“The positive impact of these new jobs will reverberate across the local economy while more broadly than that, they will also help by enhancing services at the airport, thus boosting Ireland’s connectivity to the wider world.
“As a Labour TD, I will continue to work with my colleagues to stand up for more jobs and more opportunities as the recovery continues to improve.”
