George Best Belfast City Airport is a mere 5km (3 miles) from central Belfast, Northern Ireland’s largest city (second only to Dublin in size). The airport was renamed in 2006 in honour of George Best, the legendary footballer from Belfast, who played for Manchester United.
Flights to George Best Belfast City Airport arrive from the UK and major cities in France and Spain. Annually, the airport sees more than three million passengers.
Despite the small size of the airport (a single runway) the airport is well-kept and efficient and staff are friendly. However, the parking here is notoriously expensive so use the public transport options if possible.
