Passenger Describes 'Chaos' at Dublin Airport Days After More Than 1,000 People Missed Flights

A traveler described Ireland’s main international airport as “chaos” in the early hours of May 31, two days after more than 1,000 people missed flights due to long wait times to get through security.

This timelapse footage by tourist Scott Brownlee shows a line at Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2 extending outside the building.

It comes as officials said they have given airport management 24 hours to find a solution to delays ahead of the June 6 bank holiday weekend, according to The Irish Times.

On Sunday, more than 1,000 people missed their flights due to staff shortages at security, the outlet said. Credit: Scott Brownlee via Storyful
