New figures show Dublin Airport has slipped in passenger traffic rankings.

The European airport trade body, ACI Europe, has released statistics for the first half of the year.

They show that Europe's top five busiest airports in the period were: Amsterdam-Schiphol, Paris-CDG, Frankfurt and London-Heathrow.

Dublin has previously featured high in the rankings that measure passenger traffic, topping Group 1 back in March 2016.

Group 1 means an airport handled between 10 and 25 million passengers.

However these latest figures do not see the Irish capital in any of the top five rankings.

Other airports which also saw growth were St Petersburg, Kiev, Antalya, Warsaw, Brussels and Birmingham.

Olivier Jankovec, director-general of ACI Europe, said: "For Europe's airports, this is by far the best first half-year traffic performance in more than 10 years.

"And this comes on top of significant growth - passenger volumes have expanded by close to 30% since 2012.

"This kind of growth has clearly outstripped the most optimistic forecasts - something that should be borne in mind by anyone who doubts the looming airport capacity crunch facing Europe."

Overall, the figures show passenger traffic at Europe's airports grew by an average 9%.
