Atmospheric Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland and home to some of Europe's premier attractions. Belfast to London flights leave from either Belfast International Airport (formerly Aldergrove Airport), located in the northwest of Belfast, or from Belfast City Airport, 3 miles from the city centre.
Belfast City Airport has only two runways and primarily operates services within the UK and to Irish and European cities. In 2006, it was renamed the George Best Belfast City Airport in memory of the Northern Irish football legend. Belfast International Airport flies to Ireland, the UK, continental Europe and North America and is the second busiest airport after Dublin Airport.
