CAR 3Q16 Quality of Service Monitoring Report for Dublin Airport

The Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR) has published the results of quality of service monitoring of Dublin Airport for 3Q 2016. The report summarises the results, with data reported for security queue times, baggage-handling facilities, as well as passenger survey results. There were no service of quality breaches during the quarter, but the lowest satisfaction rating was for the comfort of waiting / gate areas.

The quality of service targets, which consistent failure to meet can lead to a penalty in the price cap, correspond to 12 quality of service categories, three of which are measured and reported by Dublin Airport and nine by the Airport Council International.
