Dublin Airport Authority need to up their game!
The Seanad also debated the Fair Trade campaign. I spoke about how it can help to improve the livelihoods for small farmers in the developing world. There are currently 30 Fair Trade towns in Ireland and another 30 are seeking Fair Trade status.
I passed through Dublin Airport at the end of the week. The place is a complete rip-off! Their long-term car parking charges are now €9.50 a day. And, if you park for a part of a day they charge for the full day. So, because I stayed for 2 hours I had to pay €19.
And once you get to the terminal the rip-off continues. I had a cup of black tea (1 tea bag, 1 cup and some hot water, that I was charged €2.75 for, while sitting at a table that looked like it hadn't been cleaned since Christmas.
€2.75 to drink your tea from this table
It's time that some pressure was put on Dublin Airport Authority to up their game!
