Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The point being that current Air passenger volumes Ireland (excl. N. Ireland) to/from Britain are greater than Chunnel volumes.

Well that wasn't a proper comparison. You'd have to compare with Eurostar + all flights to Belgium and Northern France.

Fair point.  I was just trying to get a handle on potential orders of magnitude of the available traffic.  Obviously any tunnel will never capture 100% market share, unless short hop flights are banned, and prices make sea passenger/freight uneconomic - which feeds back into the issue of the financial justification for the project.
