Belfast International Airport can be found just under 20 miles from the city centre of Belfast in Northern Ireland.

Bus

If travellers wish to go by public transport from the airport to city centre then a number of buses can be boarded from the outside of the airport building.

There is an express bus called Airport Express 300 which operates from the airport dropping passengers of in the city centre. Travellers can catch the express bus 4 times an hour in peak times from a designated bus stop outside the main airport building. The bus runs all day with a reduced off peak service and on average the journey time will last around half an hour depending on time of day and rush hour traffic. Visitors can purchase bus tickets on board the airport bus from the driver or from the arrivals tourist information desk inside the terminal building.

Tourists travelling further a field can catch a bus directly from the airport to Lisburn by using the Ulster bus number 109A and by using Airporter bus service to Londonderry.
