I've been to lost of airports, but the fanatical way the security is behaving towards liquids in hand luggage reeks like a rip-off scheme. I brought my liquids in a slightly blue transparent plastic bag. According to the security people it had the wrong color and I had to buy a new plastic bag for 1. I have never experienced this in any airport in the world. It somehow felt that the security guards were in on the scheme and could divide the plastic bag earnings at the end of the day by themselves. I loved travelling in Northern Ireland and loved the friendliness of the people but the experience with the security guards left a bad aftertaste.

Travel through BFS in June, No shopping except Duty Free, just eating places. Arrived back 1 week later with 2 flights arriving within 10 mins of each other and we had to queue for 45 mins to get through Passport control! You wonder why they are not attracting new international flights! They just don't have the facilities or manpower.

I travelled through Belfast International Airport last week and my overall experience was good. I found the Airport to be small and quiet which was nice, as airports these days are a bit chaotic at times. I went through security with no issues although the large scanning machine is a bit intimidating, seems like something out of a sci-fi movie. (Is this thing really necessary?) The Security Staff were very friendly and processed my items in a timely manner. I didn't have much time to shop, which was good, because the selection was not great. That being said, I did see all the usual places, Coffee Shop, Newspaper Shop, Duty Free etc.. A clothing shop within the airport would be nice though. There was no public address announcement to go to the gate, which kind of spoiled things, as I had to constantly look at the Flight Monitor for information. Staff at the boarding gates were friendly and the walk outside to the aircraft was short. I had no issues upon my return, although the baggage hall in the arrivals area would need some paint soon. Overall, I was satisfied with the service I received in Belfast International Airport and will be using the airport again.

Terrible, dirty outdated airport! This airport needs a serious upgrade, failing that it need demolished and rebuilt! There are hardly any air bridges for planes to dock, so we had to walk around 300 meters in the winter wind and rain to get inside to airport arrivals area. I felt sorry for elderly people on board our flight who got soaked! The baggage reclaim area is dirty and for an international airport only has 2 baggage carousels! Toilets are dirty and outdated! One other thing about this airport I really noticed around the terminal entrance was the sheer amount of discarded chewing gum that was caked into the pavement directly outside, this is absolutely disgusting and not a good impression for first time visitors. The road to the airport from Belfast is terrible which takes you in single lane traffic from the motorway to the airport, which means getting stuck behind slow moving commercial vehicles, once again I have seen better airport roads in the third world! No train link at airport even though there is a station pretty much beside it! No under cover car parking at airport so be prepared for another soaking!

Like other reviewers, I was told my plastic bag was too large after it had passed through the x-ray machine, though it had been acceptable at Gatwick. I had to leave my liquids with security because I wasn't prepared to participate in the plastic bag scam. A very unpleasant experience. I will avoid flying out of Aldergrove again if I can.

Security staff at this airport are horrendous. Have a stoma passport but official refused to even consider looking at it. This contains information regarding my condition and what can be done in public and when there should be a private 'frisking'. Have never been treated like this at any other airport. And as for the search this too was far too personal. No one got through without being searched whether the machine bleeped or not. Officials were surly and very aggressive and do not give Belfast airport a good recommendation. It spoilt what was a great visit to a beautiful city.

My wife and I have used this dreadful airport twice in the last month. Fortunately we will never have to again. The security staff are not only aggressive and rude, they are ignorant of even the most basic hygiene. I had liquids in a sealable plastic sandwich bag which I have used to go through airports on several continents, including Belfast, but on the last occasion the woman at security decided, after it had been through the scanner, that it was too big and would have to buy two smaller ones from their machine. She wouldn't allow me to put my goods in the new bags and tried to do it herself. When I objected to her handling it, her boss snarled at me and insisted on doing it himself, with bare hands. I then put it back in my original bag, while he watched and said nothing. In other airports, security staff are not only reasonably pleasant but wear gloves to handle personal possessions. They also provide plastic socks for people who have been required to remove their footwear. At Belfast, they just assert that the floor is clean, despite have been walked on by hundreds of pairs of outdoor shoes!

I thought I was the only one who had complaints about Belfast International airport. The normal staff were helpful but the security staff were atrocious, ignorant and nasty. Two experiences I had: My elderly mother was asked to remove a gold chain from her neck, the chain was put carefully in the tray, went through the x-ray machine but did not appear the other side. It was taken to the notice of security staff who basically said the necklace was not put on in the first place and there was nothing could be done. I refused to move until they got a member of management and the necklace turned up under the machine. Secondly, an antique pocket watch was swab tested even though the watch passed through the x-ray machine without a problem. From one security extreme to another. Arriving from Amsterdam late one night there was a telephone on the "goods to declare desk" along with a notice saying that there was a staff shortage and if anyone had anything to declare please lift the phone and advise a staff member. One final complaint the smell of urine from a toilet behind the first restaurant as you go in was very strong, one urinal bowl was leaking from the outlet and had a bucket under it. When I got back from holiday I emailed the airport and was told it would be taken care of. 2 months later I was back at the airport and the same bucket was still in place. Visitors must think they are entering a 3rd world country.

Unfortunately I have to travel out and into this abysmal airport for business purposes ever other week. I have read a lot of comments here and I now see in the news that it has been voted 4th worst airport in the UK. I'm surprised that it is not first. The staff at the security are ignorant! The queues are always long and totally mismanaged. Even if you clear the security scanner ready for the wander round the shops they will take a part of your luggage ie your phone and do a swab on it. Don't expect any early morning newspapers either as they wont pay the staff to come in to put them out. Get them before you go through security if you are lucky. I travel over 100 times per year out of various airports. I detest going through this one. Perhaps its a good thing that the security is so slow. Means you dont have to spend as much money at their shops if they are even open!

I have used this airport both inbound and outbound about 6 times November last year. Perhaps I have been lucky as when I've passed the airport it has been very quiet, no long queues for check in or and everybody has been polite and pleasant. Facilities are a little limited, but adequate. The seating areas at the are uncomfortable and sometimes cramped but overall it's a friendly airport, and staff are pleasant helpful.

I flew from Alicante to Belfast at short notice on account of a family funeral. Disembarkation was frosty on account of the very surly and rude immigration and security staff. The transport links to Belfast are expensive. Facilities at the airport are functional. I was frisked by their security people and asked questions about my destination and purpose of visit. I was insulted as I am an EU citizen. This airport does not give a very good impression of Belfast.

Every time I have used this airport over the last 20 years, security staff have been rude and overbearing. On my most recent trip this weekend I was frisked despite not setting off any alarms, it is a pain but no big deal. This time however they decided to stand my 10 year old son to one side to wait in line with grown men to be frisked, I was informed by a right battle-axe to step away from the boy. Meanwhile, all our bags have been opened and the security man speaking to my wife asked about wrapped gifts in one of the bags. My wife explained they were presents for the children. Unfortunately for me and my family it's the only airport we can use for the journey we do and I'd love to know what staff training has been provided over the 20 years I've been using it as nothing has changed.

Flew from Belfast International to Alicante recently Check-in staff ok. Security staff atrocious. We were made to feel very ill at ease. They were very rude and abrupt to everyone in general. The only reason we suspect the public take this treatment is the fear of repercussions i.e. missing their flight. They should be sent to Alicante airport to take lessons.

The security staff have actually improved over the last couple of visits, but are still far more surly and domineering than most other UK airports. My real gripe here is the drop off charge - I get whoever is dropping me off to leave me at the roundabout beside the only Hotel at the airport, its a quick two minute walk from there to the entrance.

I found the security area to be fast and without issue, I had no problem with any personnel as a lot of people who have left reviews already, seem to mention. In other areas of the Airport I found the food to be expensive in the cafe adjoining the security area, and in the fed and watered bar, but apart from that everything else was fine including check-in which was quick and straightforward.

I no longer use this airport as they consistently squeeze every last pound they can. Smokers - 1, trolley users - 1 plus 1 pp each time per passenger for set down and pick up. As for the food, gourmet prices for greasy spoon quality just about sums it up. But what you should really ask yourself before using this facility is - given the extended time frame over which scores of other reviewers have lambasted the surly security staff attitude, why have management not addressed the issue?

I dislike travelling through this airport. They revamped the security area yet still have minimal numbers of scanners open and you still have to lug your bags across a wooden table to get them on the belt. Security staff are shouty and in common with many other reviews complete jobsworths. There is a real lack of seating in the departure lounge. It's like to get a seat you have to buy something. Free seating is also really uncomfortable - metal with no cushions. And you have to pay for wee plastic bags for liquids. This airport really is about squeezing every last penny out of travellers.

What a shame. Belfast International used to be a lovely airport, a real pleasure to travel out of. These days however the feeling you get as you walk through the door is that they want to squeeze every penny they can out of you. For a start most of the seating has disappeared only to re appear in the food outlet area, so now to sit down you either have to be at the airport first thing or buy overpriced food. Add to this a 1 charge to pick up or set down, 1 for a trolley and 1 to use a smoking room. I found security to be ok, not as friendly as Heathrow but certainly not as bad as Newark. I found that the servisair people were quite rude, I stood at the servisair booth for 10 mins before one of them acknowledged me and asked me to wait. Overall this is an airport that used to be pleasant to fly out of but now it really is a chore.

Small changes (yet again) from my last trip through. There is a new food area called 'fed and watered’ where 'Rankins' used to be (nice but usual airport high prices). Also, after leaving security you are deposited into the recently refurbished original food court area, looks nicer, but is still over-priced. My personal impression of security (see previous reviews) was a little better than usual on this trip, but only just and from observing interaction with other travellers it's still poor. The term 'officious' in previous reviews reflects my experience of security well in general. The web site shows that the current round of investment has now finished so that unlike the last few years the airport probably won't change layout every couple of months. Finally, I have neglected to mention before my experience on return. UK boarder control has been excellent and the baggage hits the carrousel very quickly. However in stark contract to the departure experience, this part of the airport hasn't changed in a long time and now feels old, worn, and tatty, it really needs a lick of paint.

I recently travelled via Belfast International. I wanted to see if I was the only one with this poor experience. I wasn't, and Mr Davis's review sums it up - The security staff at the Belfast International Airport obviously mistake officiousness for efficiency and really seem to enjoy the little power they have. I travel a fair bit, 50k flight miles a year and I find Dublin and London security staff generally friendly and good and equally the TSA have really upped their game, not Belfast Intl. Even to the point of, making me unpack my backpack after it had been through the machine and being asked why did I have so many electronic devices. They'd already been rude and inefficient throughout the process to myself and others. It was a toss-up for me between flying to Heathrow from Belfast to get a direct flight from there to get home and a 2 hour train ride to Dublin for a direct flight and clearing US immigration in Dublin. Belfast Intl airport security have made that choice easy for me, its Dublin for me from now on. One customer you have chased away and travelling is hassle enough.

I've have the misfortune to travel via this airport 3 times this year for business. The security staff at the Belfast International Airport obviously mistake officiousness for efficiency and really seem to enjoy the little power they have. As a country that relies heavily on tourism someone should realise that although they are doing an important function they are customer facing.

Arrived at Belfast Int. airport Easyjet check-in. Stood in queue for over 30mins. Only one girl on check-in desk. Off-loaded suitcases and went straight to security check with intentions of eating/ shopping once through. One item of hand luggage was targeted for searching, items were scrutinised in detail. In total well over 10 mins must have passed from opening of this single bag to leaving security. By this stage we all had to make a dash for the departure lounge as boarding was commencing. As yet no drinks or food for the kids. And usual story with Belfast Int - passengers are despatched from the seating bay into the stairwell, where they have to remain standing before being released (about 10+ mins). In past flights we've had to stand for even longer periods in these conditions. Total time to get through airport, with no breaks: over 70 mins. It would seem many passengers are opting to make the short trip down to Dublin.

Travelled through the airport recently for the first time in 2 years, was pleasantly surprised by the new layout, the security staff couldn't have been nicer, despite all the seemingly negative reviews here. Lots of space in the departures area, though the strangford eating area is very over-priced with simple meals averaging 10.There is however a burger king and a nice bar and a few shops such as WH smith and boots as well as the duty free area of course. I used the business lounge but it was my first and last time in it as it simply isn't worth the money, there are plenty of quiet areas to sit around in whilst waiting for your flight and the large window in starbucks lets you see out over the airfield.

Being my local airport, I have used Belfast International many times, watched it develop and be refurbished over the years. The relocation of security was a good move as the search area is so much bigger now, but it's a real shame that the staff can be so unpleasant when dealing with passengers, I have had to have my bags searched the last two times I have travelled out and they didn't even give me a reason why they were doing it and seemed annoyed when I had to ask them. That aside, the other services and facilities remain of a high standard and the modern departures concourse makes a pleasant start to your trip. Really pleased as well that easyJet and more recently Aer Lingus are continuing to expand their routes and you can now fly to a great range of European destinations, without having to make a connection elsewhere.

My first trip through Belfast International since November and it's changed again. Just a little this time, although thankfully for the better overall. Check-in was a breeze despite there being a number or flights checking in at the same time. Security however was the usual story. The officials that check documents before entering the main security area are polite, friendly and efficient. However after this the lines in the main security section despite being short were painfully slow. Only 1 male and 1 female member present at the scanners meaning that if anyone set off the detector, the queue was held up for people of the same gender for some time, with chaotic reorganising of the line to sort it out. Staff were also as abrupt and surly as ever. After this though the latest reconfiguration of the departure lounge was actually quite good. The old duty free area is now opened up into seating for starbucks and other outlets, giving a more light and space for travellers.

I have to say that the security queues and security staff at Belfast International airport compare very unfavourably with other airports. Queues are long and move at a snail’s pace (in spite of the fact that this was the smallest and least busy of the airports I used recently). Security staff rude and even abusive to passengers in the way they talk to them. They seem to treat everyone like some kind of criminal.

The most horrendous airport. Security over zealous and jobsworths. They make travelling by air the most unpleasant experience imaginable. Before they made changes to security, I had never come across such a disorganised and unacceptable processing times - now it is quicker, but equally ridiculous. Removing the landside retail outlets has taken away any remaining character it had, although the food outlets were very poor quality. The only good thing there is Starbucks, but that is looking shabby now and needs a clean/facelift.

Since my last trip earlier this year it has changed again. The long stay car park cost me about 25 for one week earlier this year - now 40. There is also now a 1 drop off fee for anyone getting a lift to the airport, once you have turned off the main road in to the airport grounds it is a 1 way system and you are committed to driving through the system with no way of avoiding a charge of some description! Once inside the terminal the landside is the same as it has been since the changes started to be made. After the security check the airside has changed a lot. There is little space to relax now with far too much emphasis being placed on trying to ring money out of passengers though the retail outlets. Apart from a couple of rows of seating in the middle of the departure lounge, all other space and seating has been given over to food and shop outlets. All in all travelling through Belfast International seems to become worse with each visit. There is no thought given to making it a nice experience travelling through and instead all changes are geared to shoehorning in more retail units. Since the start of redevelopment I've seen no changes that really the improve passenger experience.

Security staff could learn how to provide their service with a little more friendliness. I've never found them rude as such, but from time to time a little abrupt. As the airport is in transition from old to new it's hard to give a real opinion as the last few times I've been it's been different on each visit. On the plus side the new bits are clean and bright. On the minus, they have lost the great charm of the old airport, and the addition of the new shop units in the airside section (that until recently was landside) now cover what little window area there was. I like airports that let you see the planes taking off and landing. The viewing gallery has been gone for some time now sadly, closed but still there., No real change to the function of the airport and the passengers ability to pass through, that is genuinely noticeable, so for me what is mainly cosmetic change may look more modern, but it has lost as many points of charm as it has gained in modern appeal. The only real gripe that I think would be the same for most, would be the quality of food and its price! Starbucks is the only reasonable place to go. Inbound the walk from baggage reclaim to the exit is a little anonymous, by that I mean you walk along a few blank empty corridors that leave you wondering if you've taken a wrong turn! Not a bad airport, but room for improvement, and I think the planners need to recognise this place had a charm, and it shouldn't be buried in a drive to have a bright white clinical looking new layout.

I fly through this airport quite often and although its new entrance and security area are quite nice I do miss the old landside eateries and cafes and especially the viewing gallery! Its a bit of a mismatched airport with some parts being brand spanking new and clean and some other parts still looking very old and dated. Gate 22 is the only gate with an airbridge (most of the carriers are low cost anyway) which was recently replaced with a newer one and is used by Continental for the flight to EWR. I find the security staff quite rude and tend to run you round like cattle.

Passing through Aldergrove late morning was a doddle. The new security area is bright and clean and there was hardly anyone else in the queue at all. I was through fairly quickly and discovered the old Burger King and Food Court area, once a landside area, has been incorporated into the airside area so there is a much better selection of eating places to choose from whilst waiting. It looks as if the money being spent on the airport will be worth it in the end. I departed from Gate 16 and it is worth noting there are no toilets down at this level. The closest are beside the Business Class lounge before going down the steps towards Gate 16.

Have used this airport twice in recent weeks and was impressed by the new security area which now the space formerly taken by the WH Smith landside store. A staff member managed the security queue effectively and it did not take long to negotiate. My long standing gripe with Belfast Intl is that the baggage reclaim area in arrivals is open to all and sundry. I've always though that it would be very easy for a bag to be removed from the carousel by a non- passenger. At every other airport I've used, the reclaim area can only be accessed by arriving passengers.

The staff are all very helpful and very professional and what's more there are frequent bus connections just outside the airport terminal, which is of great relief to all without cars. The airport will be able to rival some of the world's finest when then new improvements are implemented i.e. when the new terminal and multi-storey car park are completed, sometime by 2015, I'm not certain when exactly - but it will be a must see for those who wish to experience a good time.

Staff are friendly, and the airport is quite easy to get around from check-in to the boarding gate. BFS needs to have more air bridges - only have one at gate 22 which continental use every day for their service to Newark. Security staff can be a bit rude at times.


BELFAST INT'L AIRPORT review : 30 April 2009 : by A Gilchrist

The only gripe I have about this Airport is the security. The long queues, the unfriendly security staff. The long wait if your bags have to be checked. On one occasion there was a chap in front of me who had flown in for a connecting flight to Europe - when he went through security they said that the plastic bag that he used for the liquids was too big. He said that he always used this one at every airport. So they took out a ruler and measured it - it was 5 mm over and they told him he would have to buy one from the machine conveniently placed after the security for 1.

I found the airport user-friendly in all senses. All the employees are helpful and welcoming, the facilities are good, and even when my flight out was over 2 hours delayed, I found it pleasant enough not to mind the delay and it was also uncrowded.
