Flights to Belfast

By: Craigwilson
There are two airports serving Belfast there is Belfast International Airport and George Best Belfast City Airport. Belfast City in nearer to the city centre whilst Belfast International is about twenty minutes drive away. Both airports have adequate public transport between them making it easy to get to and from the airports

Belfast flights between the UK generally fly into Belfast City Airport whilst most of the European ones use Belfast International Airport. There are however some domestic flights between the UK and Belfast.

Toronto flights to Belfast, flights to Cancun, Vancouver and Orlando are all routes available direct from Belfast International Airport with airlines such as Fly Globespan, Continental Airlines and low cost transatlantic airline Zoom.

Without the arrival of the low cost carries the flight destinations from Belfast would not have grown so fast. You can even get a Belfast flight from Blackpool saving you a lot of hassle rather than having to take a ferry.

If you are looking for flights to Belfast from destinations both Belfast Airports have various options on certain routes. Glasgow to Belfast flights are a perfect example of this as you can get a flight to Belfast City from Glasgow with Easyjet and Belfast International with Flybe. If you are not bothered which Belfast airport you travel to then you could get the best fare or the flight with the most convenient times.

Another advantage of having two airports is that airlines often compete on routes and use different airports. A good example of this is a flight from Birmingham to Belfast City with Flybe. There is nothing stopping you travelling to or from Belfast City and returning into Belfast International. Bmibaby also have flights from Birmingham but this time into Belfast Internaional.

With the arrival of the new airlines you can take a short break to many new destinations and get a flight from Belfast without travelling via Manchester or London. Direct flights from Belfast mean you get more time away and there is not the hassle with changing aircraft and waiting about for a connecting flight.
