G8 Travel Update

Important Travel Information from Belfast International Airport

Passengers are to be advised that Belfast International Airport will be open and fully operational during the period surrounding the G8 summit from the 12th of June until the 20th of June.

Airport Car Parks and the Drop Off Zone will be open, the terminal will be fully operational and all flights will check in as normal, although passengers are advised to leave additional journey time to the airport. 

The police officers deployed as part of this security operation will seek to maintain the integrity of the area by implementing vehicle checkpoints, carrying out searches and other security related duties. The vehicle checkpoints in particular will mean motorists may face delays and we strongly advise that some additional time is left for any journey in this area. We would stress that this is particularly important for anyone travelling to Belfast International Airport.

Unfortunately it is impossible to predict at this stage the degree of any delay individual motorists may experience however we expect that the police resources deployed to the area will be such that any disruption will be kept to a minimum.

People across Northern Ireland are encouraged to stay informed and up to date by finding us on Facebook – search PSNIG8, or by following us on Twitter – @PSNIG8.

Passengers can also keep up to date by checking the airport's website as well following us on Twitter@ @BELFASTAIRPORT or by finding us on facebook  - search for Belfast International Airport
