Cheap car park Belfast international airport

Belfast International Airport is very important for Belfast and, in particular, the Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council. Belfast International Airport is the key to the economic recovery of Belfast and Northern Ireland. The Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough council's planning committee has approved a £15 million investment plan for the Belfast International Airport. There will be a major extension to the main terminal building to give it a new facade and make the airport more efficient. The demand for cheap air travel, with carriers like EasyJet and Ryanair, will pick up in the coming years. Parkos anticipates more demand for self park spaces and other services such as Meet and Greet Belfast International Airport parking, also known as the valet service.

The airport extension will have an enhanced security area. This allows passengers to clear the terminal faster, thereby improving passenger's experience through the airport of Belfast. Nonetheless, planning your trip to Belfast International Airport is an important part of your travel plan. However, there is limited public transport for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How early to arrive at Belfast Airport?


    How many hours you should arrive at your Belfast airport parking depends on two things. 1. The type of flight you take (international or domestic) and 2. your parking method (meet and greet or park and ride). In general it is advised to be ready to go through airport security 2 hours before your plane takes off.

    Park and Ride 

    Park and ride means that you’ll drive your car to an offsite location. Here you park your car yourself. A free shuttle service is available to take you to Belfast airport. Most offsite parkings are located within a 10-20 minutes drive from the airport. When calculating the time you should arrive at the airport you should include the parking, shuttle transfer time and check in time. The estimated transfer time can always be found in the listing page of the parking.

    Meet and Greet 

    Meet and Greet means that instead of driving to the parking you drive to the airport. At Belfast airport a valet driver will be waiting for you. After quick paperwork the valet will park your car for you. When you choose meet and greet parking you don’t have to add extra time for parking and transfers. 

    International flights

    International flights often have more security measures in place. Check in can take longer. You might have to go through passport control or have your visa checked. This costs extra time. We don’t want you to stress in case the airport is busy and waiting lines are long. We therefore advise you to be at the airport and ready to go through security 3 hours before boarding.

  • How does Meet and Greet work at Belfast airport?


    You can park your car quickly and easily with the Meet and Greet service at Belfast airport. You drive straight to Belfast airport's departure hall and call the parking partner around a half-hour before your arrival.

More information about the Meet and Greet service at Belfast Airport may be found further down this page. 

    On arrival

    You drive your car to the Belfast airport departures hall, where you are greeted by a member of the parking provider's staff. The vehicle is next observed carefully, and you are required to sign a receipt for it. As a consequence, whenever you return from a vacation, you should carefully check to determine if your vehicle has sustained any damage. The attendant will take your car keys and drive it to the parking lot. So, in the meanwhile, you may go to Belfast International airport to check in and continue your trip without stress. You do not need to drive to the parking lot; instead, the staff will park your car in an available space for you.

    On return

    When you return after your journey, please tell the parking attendant staff that you have arrived and collected your bags at the baggage claim. The phone number of the parking partner may be found in the reservation confirmation email. You and the parking attendant have agreed on a time and location for your arrival. The parking lot employees will transport your car to the agreed-upon spot, which is usually in front of the Belfast international airport arrivals hall.
