Select Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Dublin Airport Authority: Discussion with Chairman Designate
While waiting for the Chairman to come back, I will make my contribution. The figures presented today show turnover is up by 20%, that profit after tax is up, that there has been an improved return on equity, that there are extra passengers and there that has been a return to growth in Cork. There are improved international operations. There is little doubt as to why Mr. Ó Ríordáin has been asked to stay on as chairman. The figures are a ringing endorsement of him and also the staff working under the auspices of the Dublin Airport Authority. As committee members, we should acknowledge this.
