Dublin Airport’s Platinum service will be closed until further notice.

The luxury airport service, which was in the midst of a storm when DAA CEO Dalton Philips used it to fly to the Middle East last Saturday, was closed late yesterday until further notice.

According to sources close to the situation, the service offering “VIP individualized treatment” for a fee starting from € 295 has been shut down due to “serious pressure” from the government.

Platinum services typically have two staff members working at a time. They will be relocated to other areas within the airport.

A spokesperson for DAAGraeme McQueen confirmed the news.

“Platinum service is currently unavailable. We have taken this step to optimize resources for the entire airport operation. We apologize for any inconvenience and would like to resume normal service in the near future. We are here. “

Many high-flying executives from the business and financial world use the service when they come to Ireland for business. A-list celebrities who have used it in recent years include U2, Ed Sheeran, and Taylor Swift.

VIP passengers are welcomed in a dedicated suite and private security screening area that is open 24/7 without being disturbed by security queues or baggage carousels.

They also have access to and from planes to vehicles with drivers.

Platinum service costs € 295 including one-way VAT. However, if passengers travel together at a cost of € 165 per additional passenger, the fare may be cheaper.

DAA states that it is currently considering an “emergency response plan” on how to maintain the security of VIP passengers.

Meanwhile, Dublin Airport is calling for a review of the situation as soon as possible, according to sources close to the situation.

One source explains: “This is not what Dublin Airport wants. They want to keep doing all the services. All the other countries and major cities in the world offer this service. Huge amount to Ireland. The CEO of a large Irish company investing in is using it and can’t imagine how they would feel through regular security. “
