Dublin airport’s “Airport Genie” service comes in a number of flavours.
The simplest and cheapest option gives you fast track access through security, with SMS alerts and a free coffee.
Today I am flying with Aer Lingus and since I don’t have status with them I decided to pay the €5 to get Airport Genie.
I’m delighted that I did.
The “normal” security line at Dublin’s T2 was showing a 30 minute wait time and that was probably optimistic.
With fast track access I had practically no wait time at all and was in the lounge 5 minutes after entering security.
If you’re flying via Dublin Airport at peak hours the extra €5 is well worth it as it not only saves you time, but makes for a much more pleasant experience.
(They’ll even text you to let you know which gate to board through, which is kind of handy!)
