How We Work


Flexibility is key to our approach in everything we do. Using our resource of over 3,500 aviation professionals, we expand and alternate the team to meet our clients specific needs at any given time during the course of the project. We work side by side with management and teams to understand the clients needs and provide holistic support and resolution.


daa International is a trusted global partner and we continue to expand through partnerships that bring innovation and excellence to the aviation sector and by leveraging our extensive experience in operating some of the most progressive airports in the world. We are passionate about the communities we work with and engage with the Government and tourism authorities at all our airports promoting regional development.​

Cost Control

Our expertise and consultancy experience comes from a relentless focus on cost control and revenue generation through operations, asset care and development in airports ranging in size from 1 million to over 50 million passengers per annum.


Dublin Airport is home to Ryanair, the world’s largest and most profitable international low-cost airline, in addition to being the base for Etihad’s most profitable route. daa was born out of an airline and airport single entity – aviation is in our DNA. 


We are experts in setting out KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) and SLA’s (Service Level Agreements) that yield excellent results in terms of passenger service and satisfaction.

Whether it is at our own airports or those of our clients, we bring expertise in performance delivery and measurement. Results are the true measure of performance, but knowing and having the confidence that these results will be achieved, is through the skill of a good and experienced management team. In recent years the gathering, collation and proper interpretation of data has become the key to successful airport management.

A Proven Team

Our team has a track record and expertise in seamlessly integrating with existing management, staff and structures to deliver complex transition and transformation.​


As owner-operators, daa International is acutely aware of the technical, regulatory and commercial constraints that our clients face, and we fulfil all nature of management contracts from transition handling (ORAT) to ongoing day-to-day operations. We understand the operating and capital requirements associated with all areas of the airport business and work closely with our clients to unlock optimum value from their assets.
