Airport ready for summer rush

Published: 08 July 2013

As the summer holiday exodus gets underway in earnest, Belfast international Airport is gearing up to welcome tens of thousands of passengers through its doors over the next few days.

Uel Hoey, the airport’s Business Development Director, says, “This is  traditionally the busiest time of the year at the airport and this year we are expecting 50,000 passengers over next few days with upwards of 150,000 passengers over the next two weeks.  We have additional customer service staff on hand to help out passengers who need some assistance with their journey and we have planned a summer party in the departures concourse to  get passengers in the holiday mood with face painters, children’s entertainers and lots of goodies to give away.” 


Popular destinations this summer include New York, Florida, Paris, Sharm el Sheikh as well as the traditional holiday hot spots of Spain, Cyprus and Greece.
