One million use Dublin Airport U.S. preclearance facility in a year (International Airport Review)

Dublin Airport has welcomed its one millionth Customs and Border Protection (CBP) preclearance passenger in a ceremony marking the occasion. Selected passenger Philamena Linton was presented with a bottle of champagne on the 15 December shortly before boarding her Delta flight to New York. For the first time since the facility opened in 2010, a million people have been processed in a single year.

Preclearance at Dublin Airport enables passengers flying to the USA to be processed for US immigration and customs while still in Dublin. This service allows passengers to move quickly to their next destination without any further processing requirement. Preclearance also allows airlines to access a broader range of domestic airport terminals and domestic airports in the US.

Daon was selected from an international tendering procedure for the supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of Automated Passport Control (APC) Kiosks and their associated services/equipment in the US PreClearance facility in Dublin Airport.
