Belfast City Airport

We are proud of the contribution that Belfast City Airport makes to the growing prosperity of Northern Ireland, not only as a major gateway for business and leisure passengers but as a catalyst to direct and indirect employment opportunities in and around the airport. However, we are also aware that the operation of any airport brings an environmental impact to local communities.

Our policy is to take account of the interests of all those who live near or use the airport, or who are employed or benefit as a result of our activity.

Our commitment to the community is to continue to develop our business in a sustainable manner, seeking to both enhance the economic growth of the province and minimise environmental impact.

Facts and Figures

The first passenger flight from Northern Ireland took place in August 1910. The pilot was the legendary Harry Ferguson, the passenger a Miss Rita Marr

Regular civil air services did not begin until 31 May 1933, carrying up to 4 passengers twice daily between Northern Ireland and Renfrew, Scotland.

"Belfast Harbour Airport" was opened on 16 March 1938 by Mrs Neville Chamberlain, wife of the then British Prime Minister. The inaugural flight was to Glasgow, Scotland. Throughout the war the Harbour Airport, or RAF Belfast as it became known, was home to the development and deployment of many famous aircraft including the legendary Shorts Sunderland flying boat.

The runway was extended to its present 6000ft in 1952, requiring more than 500,000 tons of filling due to the nature of the reclaimed land.

The airport has always been an important centre for military aviation research and innnovation and on 6 April 1960 was the setting for the maiden flight by the world's first Vertical TakeOff and Landing jet (The SC1), a forerunner to the Harrier 'JumpJet'

Scheduled passenger flights re-commenced on Monday 7 February 1983. The terminal buildings comprised of converted sheds and a wartime Nissen hut, and baggage handling was done by the airport's Fire Service.

In November 1995, Belfast City Airport played host to US President Bill Clinton.

The continual development of facilities since the re-opening in 1983 culminated in the construction of a completely new terminal which opened on 3 June 2001.

In 2003, ownership of the airport passed to Ferrovial. With its headquarters in Madrid, the Ferrovial Group has interests in the construction industry and airports around the world.
