HaHa!  Great minds...

I wonder if they'll charge us/our passengers or will we be allowed drop-off free of charge?  Could get ugly if loads of taxis start dropping passengers off at the boundary and letting them find their own way to the terminals...

Where it will get interesting is if you're in a one way system to a barrier and the traffic is backed up with cabs and punters want to get out and walk and you have to wait in traffic and then pay the fee to get out again,ask me bollix.

a daa spokesperson said: “Dublin Airport has no current plans to introduce drop-off or pick-up charges”.

Common enough in other airports but, at least for drop offs, I guess taxis could treat the toll as a toll and pass it on to the client - albeit with no provision for profit - in accordance with the maximum fare rules specified by NTA... although Free Now could use it's influence to mitigate the same, I guess.
