Belfast City Airport

George Best Belfast City Airport (BHD)


One of Northern Ireland's major airports, George Best Belfast City Airport is named in honour of a legendary footballer who played for Manchester United in the 1960s.

The airport is small in size with just a single runway for daily flights. The terminal is known for its efficiency, however, and little amenities such as the children's play area, in addition to a small selection of restaurants and shops, make it a pleasant travel hub for flights to and from Belfast.

Flights to George Best Belfast City Airport are available primarily on UK budget carriers, and are available to cities across the UK, as well as a few major European cities and holiday resorts.


The airport is situated five miles (8km) east of Belfast.
