Belfast International Airport has issued a warning to passengers to leave extra time to catch their flight during the G8 Summit, which is being held in Northern Ireland on June 17 and 18.
The airport said there will be increased security and delays on all roads around the airport, in the days leading up to, and until the event. “It is not possible to say how much extra time to allow for when catching a flight, but there will be heightened security on the roads round
the airport and in the airport terminal itself,” said spokeswoman Deborah Harris.
“Passengers leaving Belfast International, and indeed arriving, will see the increased security levels in the terminal as well as on the roads, but they should not be alarmed.
Belfast International will be the airport used by all the official G8 delegations, but George Best Belfast City Airport is also expected to be very busy. City Airport officials expect the airport’s Heathrow services to be especially heavily booked with back-up teams to the official delegations.
