Airport takes off with local artists

7 Jul 2016

Visitors and passengers travelling through Belfast International Airport will soon be treated to artwork showcasing some of Northern Ireland’s most beautiful views and scenic landscapes.

Belfast International Airport recently ran a competition for artists to submit designs to be displayed in the arrivals areas.

Local artists Tanya Mai Johnston from Belfast and Melissa Houston from Cookstown were selected by a panel of judges to have their artwork mounted in the international and domestic arrivals areas at Belfast International Airport.

Announcing the winners, Jaclyn Coulter, Belfast International Airport’s HR Manager, said: “We were inundated with some truly fantastic designs by some very talented artists for our art competition but we felt that both Melissa and Tanya’s work captured the essence of this project. We are really excited to see these designs in place as we are sure the will make a fantastic welcome to the millions of passengers who will pass them every year."

The winning designs will be erected by the end of July and will be seen by the 5 million passengers who will pass through Belfast International Airport’s doors over the next 12 months.
