    Grand small airport. Remember if traveling to here it is actually quite a bit outside Belfast but the better airport of the two

    Shockingly there is no free wifi in this airport with a min tariff of £5 not even 30 mins free. Use the cloud if you're on it. Not so international as other airports it seems.

    Keep an eye on the time table they don't make it clear where your flight will be and doesn't give you time to get to your gate. In other news the PRAYER ROOM is a good place to sleep over night!

    If you plan on having more than one drink, buy a bottle of wine in duty free and down it in the toilets. Never done it myself but it would be a lot cheaper

    Having previously spent 9 hours in here waiting. I can tell you it's cold and incredibly uncomfortable for a wait of anything over 15 mins. Chairs other than in the cafe are pretty much non existent.
