Belfast City Airport is around 10 minutes from Belfast city centre, there is a taxi rank outside the airport (shouldn’t cost more than £6/7) and a regular shuttle service (£2.20 single, £3.30 month return) which will drop you off at the Europa Bus Centre in town.
Belfast International Airport receives flights from the UK, Europe and one direct connection to Newark.
