New Translink ticket vending machine takes-off at Belfast International Airport

Convenient off-board Translink ticket purchase now available for airport customers A new state-of-the-art Translink Ticket Vending Machine (TVM) has gone live at Belfast International Airport to support pre-boarding ticket purchase options for public transport.

The machine offers customers a quick, safe and convenient ticketing option when travelling from the airport, and adds to other purchase methods such as the Translink website, ticket offices and dedicated mobile app.

Off-board ticketing supports Translink’s drive to increase contactless and cashless ticketing across the network and is a key part of Translink’s Future Ticketing System. This new TVM accepts credit and debit cards including contactless payments (up to £100) as well as coins and notes.

Customers can purchase single, return and Friends & Family tickets as well as top up existing Translink smartcard products like Smartlink and iLink. An important accessibility feature is the machine’s adjustable touch screen for ticket selection which can be dragged up or down to suit customer needs.
