‘Dublin Airport is excited to be the home of the first concept store of this kind to be opened in Ireland. Whether passengers want to pick up a pre-flight sandwich and coffee, or essentials such as milk and cereal after arriving back into Dublin Airport, the technology deployed in “Dublin Town To Go” means they can do it quickly and in a hassle-free manner. We can’t wait for passengers to try out the new store for themselves.’
