    Default Air India considering T2 for US flights hub

    This will be a boon to Dublin if they can get it. Plus it will provide a lot of extra routes and competition from Ireland to the US keeping fares low. Also, there will be cheap seats going to India for the footloose among us.

    Thanks for this - good to see, however it came about, that the most obvious hard-to-replicate advantage we have (the last craggy outpost on the way from Europe to America) is not getting forgotten amid all this digital mullarkey.

    I thought Shannon would make more sense seeing that the US customs pre clearance is opening this year. Its good to see that something will be going to T2. As it stands its just going to be an empty shed.

    T2 will have preclearance as well.

    Good spot this, very interesting. White elephant comments will be held in abeyance until further notice....

    Didn't realise that. As someone who travels to the US a lot it can be a major time saver.

    Would be a great addition to Dublin Airport if it goes ahead. Agree that for a multitude of reasons it makes more sense to try and house it there as opposed to Shannon etc.

    Loss-making Air India would also be able to pick up passengers at Dublin airport, either for continuation to the United States, or to India, although the level of such additional business would certainly be low. That could diminish the chance of Dublin being chosen by Air India, which would be able to access higher levels of additional traffic at bigger European cities.
    But, the excellent links between Dublin and the UK might negate that problem to an extent - considering that's where most European originating traffic to India comes from. Could be good for Aer Lingus as well ...
