Dublin Airport operator will not appeal car park decision


Dublin Airport operator daa has confirmed that it will not appeal the competition regulator’s decision to block its purchase of the former QuickPark facility in Santry.

It said it had made the decision following careful review of the CCPC’s judgement and in the interests of getting the facility’s 6,200 spaces back on the market for passengers in time for summer.

There is an urgent need for more parking spaces at Dublin Airport and daa is calling on the owners of the QuickPark site and any other potential bidders to act speedily to get the facility back open for consumers and to alleviate the significant strain that’s on Dublin Airport’s car parks – all of which are fully sold out this Easter weekend.

The airport operator said allowing daa to own and operate the former QuickPark facility would have been a good result for consumers, bringing increased choice and lower prices for the travelling public.

It said while it sees merit in an appeal of the CCPC decision, the expectation is that any appeals process would take years, and it said its passengers cannot wait that long for these spaces to come on the market.

daa said it encourages all parties to ensure the prompt delivery of the BusConnects and MetroLink projects which will provide sustainable transport options for passengers looking to get to and from Dublin Airport, taking tens of thousands of car journeys off the roads each year.
