About Belfast

Flights to Belfast

Flights to Belfast land at either Belfast International Airport (BFS) or George Best Belfast City Airport (BHD). Both airports serve budget airline flights the whole year through, from the short hop across the Irish Sea and beyond.

Flights to Belfast International Airport

Belfast International, or Aldergrove Airport as it is still commonly referred to, lies northwest of Belfast, and is named after the village in which it sits. It is the busier of the two airports in Belfast, welcoming millions of visitors per year.

Due to its location just outside of Belfast, flying into Belfast International offers spectacular views of the city - with its rolling green hills and ornate architecture - from above.

It is a short 13-mile drive from the airport to the city centre. At the front of the terminal building as you arrive in Belfast there is an Airport Express 300 service that will drop you to the city centre in 30-40 minutes.

Flights to Belfast City Airport

The smaller of the two airports, George Best Belfast City, named after the city's favourite footballing son, is located even closer to the city centre, and serves flights from all major UK airports.

The close proximity to the city centre means cab fares should not break the bank, while a train from nearby Sydenham railway station will take you to the heart of Belfast in no time. Airport Express 600 buses operate from the airport as frequently as every 20 minutes, and the number 3 Translink Metrobus and a Translink Metro coach service can also be taken.

Flights from Derry to Belfast

Visitors to Belfast also have the opportunity to see more of Northern Ireland for their money. Flights to Londonderry en route to Belfast, home of such cultural luminaries as poet Seamus Heaney and the band The Undertones, are moderately priced. Derry, which became the first city to be recognised as a UK Capital of Culture in 2010, is around an hour and a half drive from Belfast, perfect if you are hiring a car on the Emerald Isle.
