Belfast International Airport

Formerly known as Aldergrove Airport, named after the nearby village of Aldergrove which lies immediately to the west of the airport, Belfast International Airport is still fondly remembered by many by its former name. More than 4 million passengers go through Belfast International Airport a year, making it the busiest airport in Northern Ireland. The airport has only 1 terminal and houses a range of shopping and eating options. There is a bureaux de change and several ATMs throughout the terminal building as well as postal facilities, telephones and Internet kiosks.

The entire airport is covered by Spectrum internet access points so passengers can access the technology from any seating area within the terminal building, providing passengers with the flexibility of mobile working, without plugging in to any phone lines! However, users have to pay a minimal fee to use this service. Otherwise, check in at the business lounge to use the internet service for free while enjoying a wide range of mouthwatering treats and a cup of freshly brewed coffee! Be sure to book a spot online if you do not have free lounge access to secure a spot on the comfortable sofas!

A tourist information counter and airport customer service counter are located in the airport to help passengers with their requests -- from booking a tour to lost baggage enquiry, the friendly staff will do their best to help you with it! Also, while waiting for your baggage or your flight, why not check out the duty-free shops at the airport? From perfumes to souvenirs, there is definitely something that will catch your eye. Alternatively, enjoy a meal at the various restaurants, bars, cafes and fast food chains to fortify yourself for the next leg of your journey.

Although smoking is permitted within the building, smokers can do so outside and also at the airside smoking facility, situated after security beside the Lagan Bar. Various assistance will be provided for travellers with disabilities to ensure a smooth journey, and the lifts and slides available around the airport will guarantee easy accessibility around the airport.
