Offering many short and long-haul flights, Belfast International Airport is the 10th busiest in the UK. It’s often cheaper to travel to Belfast and then get a flight, especially to America, from mainland Britain, so it’s easy to see why getting the right parking for your journey is crucial. To make sure you make the best choice for you and your vehicle, JetParks have made this helpful guide packed full of useful parking information.
Pick-up & Drop-off at Belfast International
Pick-up and drop-off at Belfast Airport is super-simple as there’s a handy drop-off zone directly outside the terminal doors that can be used by any visitors to the airport. The drop-off zone is reasonably priced, although it becomes much more expensive after an hour of use. If you need longer than an hour to collect or drop-off your passengers the airport recommends that you book a short-stay parking space.
