About Belfast City Airport

George Best Belfast City Airport, named after the late Northern Irish footballer George Best, is more commonly known as Belfast City Airport. It is located in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is a single-runway airport, which shares its site with the Short Brothers manufacturing facility. Belfast City Airport serves a multitude of destinations across Ireland and Great Britain. It accounts for 40 percent of domestic flights going to and from Northern Ireland and serves 54 percent of the population. Live flight information is available online and on mobile phones.

Belfast City Airport is located on the southern shore of Belfast Lough, only 4.8 kilometers from the Belfast City Centre. The airport's facilities include pubs, restaurants, two conference rooms, various car rental companies and two car parks. Disabled services are available as well. Low-level curbs and ramps are located in the car parks. Along with handicapped toilets, many employees are familiar with Sign Language and are always happy to assist passengers with special needs.

The airport traces its roots back to 1937. Originally called Sydenham Airport, it was Belfast's biggest civilian airport until 1939. The onset of the Second World War found Sydenham Airport being called to serve the Royal Navy. It would continue to be owned by the military until the late 1970s.

Following the war, the main non-military airport in Belfast became RAF Nutts Corner until 1983. This was the year Sydenham Airport was purchased by the Shorts Brothers and re-branded first as Belfast Harbour Airport and finally as Belfast City Airport.

In June 2001, the airport opened a brand new terminal. It was purchased in 2003 by the Ferrovial Group. Over 2,200,000 passengers had passed through Belfast City Airport by 2005. After the airline Bmibaby Limited left the airport, the majority of flights were operated by regional airline Flybe Group PLC. Flybe is Europe's largest regional airline and employs around 2,800 people. It uses Belfast City Airport as a major base of operation.
