Change to Permitted Operations



North Runway was granted planning permission subject to 31 planning conditions. For further information on North Runway planning conditions click here.

Once North Runway becomes operational, two of the conditions become problematic, as they would mean the following restrictions would apply:

  • Condition 3(d) of the 2007 planning permission prohibits the use of the new North Runway for landings and takeoffs between the hours of 23.00 and 07.00.
  • Condition 5 states that, on completion of construction of the new runway, the average number of night time aircraft movements at the airport shall not exceed 65/night (between 23.00 and 07.00).

daa is now embarking on a process to change these two conditions in order to maintain the operational flexibility that currently exists at Dublin Airport and to ensure the airport can continue to facilitate anticipated future demand for aviation services, grow in line with national policy and meet economic requirements. This process is referred to as the ‘Proposed Change to Permitted Operations’.
