Belfast flights are available to/from one of two airports: Belfast International Airport or George Best Belfast City Airport. Belfast International Airport is located approximately 17 miles (approximately 30 minutes by car or bus) from the city centre and is where all of the international flights arrive and depart, as well as some domestic flights. George Best Belfast City Airport is located just 3 miles from the city centre and is home to the majority of domestic flights within Ireland and the UK. Here you will find flights scheduled for locales such as England, Scotland, the Isle of Man and the Republic of Ireland.
Once you have booked your Belfast flights it is good to start thinking about how you will make your way from the airport to the city itself. If you have booked an international flight and will be arriving into the Belfast International Airport you will be able to hire a taxi outside of either of the two terminal buildings, rent a car from one of the many reputable car hires, take the Airport Express service from Ulsterbus (which drops passengers at the Europa Bus Centre, near the Europa Hotel in Belfast), or use the Airporter transfer service, which offers free WiFi onboard. It is very important to note that there is no direct train service to and from the Belfast International Airport into Belfast; however there is a train into Belfast from the nearby city of Antrim. A quick taxi ride will have you from the airport to train station in Antrim in no time. Arriving into George Best Belfast City Airport instead? Your options are much the same. You will be able to hire a taxi, rent a car or use the Airporter transfer service. In addition to these options you will be able to take a train. The nearby Sydenham Station offers service to Central Station in Belfast. A shuttle bus service is available between George Best Belfast City Airport and Sydenham Station.
Another option available from both airports is a pre-arranged car service with companies such as Value Cabs, Fonacab and Citi Cabs. If pre-booked, you’ll be met by a driver and whisked through the terminal in style to a private car, wasting no time in bus or taxi queues and getting started on your Irish adventure right away!
