2019 Determination

In 2019, we will make a new determination on the maximum level of airport charges (the price cap) at Dublin Airport, for a period of 4 plus years, commencing on the 1 January 2020. It will replace the 2014 Determination which set maximum charges between 2015 and 2019.

The 2019 Determination will be made against a backdrop of four years of extraordinary growth in aviation in Ireland. Dublin Airport is a major international airport, the eleventh busiest in the EU, as of January 2018, with almost 200 destinations served by over 50 airlines.



We expect to publish a Final Determination in Autumn 2019, most likely around the end of September. Our Final Determination will be informed by the submissions we receive from the public consultation on our Draft Determination. 

How to respond to the Draft Determination

We seek the views of interested parties regarding the proposals in the 2019 Draft Determination.
