Belfast International Airport (IATA: BFS, ICAO: EGAA) is an airport 11.5 NM (21.3 km; 13.2 mi) northwest of Belfast in Northern Ireland. It was formerly known and is still referred to as Aldergrove Airport, after the nearby village of Aldergrove, which lies immediately to the west. Nearly 4.4 million passengers travelled through the airport in 2015, a 9% increase compared with 2014. Belfast International is the busiest airport in Northern Ireland and the second busiest airport on the island of Ireland in terms of passenger numbers after Dublin Airport and is followed by Belfast-City, Cork and Shannon.

Belfast International has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (Number P798) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction. The airfield was previously shared with the Royal Air Force base RAF Aldergrove, which closed in 2008; the base is now known as Joint Helicopter Command Flying Station, Aldergrove and both runways are now owned by the airport. The airport is owned by ADC & HAS, the same company which owns Stockholm Skavsta, Orlando Sanford International Airport, Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport, Mariscal Sucre International Airport and Juan Santamaría International Airport.

Belfast International Airport Reviews

really nice airport flew there since i was 3. very clean and friendly staff
- conall larkin

Check in crowded with too few operators
- peter smith

Excellent food at cafe
- Tom

Great place to wait for your flight back
- Adam Duce

What an appalling hole this airport is. its too far away from the city, the decor is depressing, the building is old, there is no wifi, there may be a starbucks and a burger king but that isn't enough to win anyone around considering the queue at security and the fact you WILL be rained on boarding the aircraft because there are no boarding tunnels and you can't really fly anywhere because the airport as well as belfast city airport has a disappointingly short list of destinations.
- Ian Patton

Brilliant airport right down the road, a few nitpicks would be waiting times are quite long and the airport is very busy and crowded at times but a large window and plenty of TV's can solve that. the 2 hr wait for our flight felt like 10 mins watching all the planes land and take off and counting how many of each airline you would see
- Tommy McCreight

Aldergrove is an OK airport. The restaurants and shops are of a good quality but the airport is very dark and noisy. I would say the City is better but the International gets you to a lot more places.
- Belfast Aviation Spotter

Very far out from Belfast itself, the bus from the City Centre if slightly expensive. Quiet Airport, got through security quickly. The Wi-Fi is very good here, and the waiting areas are very good, not much in the way of food but not bad overall
- John Hunnisette

The airport was fairly busy and there weren't enough places for everyone to sit. The Wi-Fi was good but not the least they had access.
- Alberto Ortega

Late-ish flight on Sunday night - all the food outlets were closed or closing. Not enough seating, poor PA announcements and shambolic queues for departure gates. A terrible little airport
- Robert Heywood
