The Belfast City airport Short Stay car park is the first car park on your right hand side as you enter the airport site. You will also find the drop off and pick up area adjacent to the Short Stay car park. You will be able to book the short stay parking online in advance.
Long Stay parking
Located 10-15 minutes away from the terminal building (the bus service from this car park is no longer offered), the Long Stay car park is the more cost-effective option for those heading off for longer journeys.
Fast Track car park
If speed and quick access is a priority for you, Fast Track car park is the closest parking facility to the terminal and is a favourite among business travellers.
The service includes the complementary fast track security access, where the passenger gets their fast track pass quickly, avoiding queues.
