Reserve your airport parking at Belfast International Airport (airport code BFS) in advance and keep your stress level down for your next trip!
There is one Belfast airport parking lot, so it really does pay to book in advance – especially during busy travel periods. The lot is at the “Killead Lodge” and is off-airport about a half-mile from the airport, but there are transfer shuttles which run 24 hours a day and take only five minutes to get from the parking lot to the terminal.Belfast International Airport:
- Belfast International Airport is one of two airports in the city, but it is the major international airport. It is about 21 km from the city center.

- Belfast’s airport is also sometimes known as Aldergrove, because that is the name of the town which lies closest to the airport itself.
- The other local airport is George Best Belfast City Airport (airport code BHD), which is closer to the city of Belfast and mainly serves the domestic market.
