Connecting the Northern Irish capital to the world, Belfast International Airport is one of the UK’s biggest travel hubs. Every year it welcomes more than four million passengers, with many bound for iconic Irish attractions like the Ulster Museum, Mourne Mountains, Carrickfergus Castle, Golden Mile, Titanic Quarter and more.
The facility offers all the frills of an international airport, including shops, cafes, restaurants and rest areas. From stocking up on duty-free items and in-flight essentials to last minute souvenir shopping and pre-flight snacks, Belfast International has it covered. Passengers can also check live flight information online, with free Wi-Fi available at all departure lounges.
The airport is well-serviced by public transport, with regular buses and coaches running to Belfast, Lisburn and Londonderry. Both on and off site parking is available, with a string of car rental companies also located nearby.
For Game of Thrones buffs, Belfast International Airport is the gateway to some of the show’s most spectacular filming locations. The airport’s history is just as dramatic, with the original site built in 1917 as a WWI training establishment for the Royal Flying Corps. Civic flights started taking off in 1922, with Belfast International Airport now flying to destinations across the globe.
