Is there a regular bus service between BFS and BHD? How could I reach BHD from BFS (and vice-versa), bar using a taxi?

 Wink/being sarcastic Cheers.  Wink/being sarcastic

Only was as far as I know using public transport, is to take the Airbus service (£5 single, £8 return) from Belfast International to the city centre, leving every thirty minutes. I think it goes to Great Victoria Street station, where there are trains (not very frequent) to the station facing BHD, and I think there is also a bus service but I do not know much about it. Check www.translink.co.uk for details.

Cheers for your help, BFS.  Smile I guess it'd be much easier just to fly into BHD from MAN, but it'll cost £40+ more than flying LPL-BFS-LPL with U2. :| Ah well. Cheers again, mate!

Taking the train to BHD is a pain - the station is nowhere near as close to the new terminal as it was to the old one.

Easiest way: take the Airlink bus from BFS to Europa Buscentre, then pick up the City Airport Airlink bus from there. The BHD bus is every half-hour, £2 single.

Me, I'll often pay the extra to use BHD, though - much nicer airport than the International, IMO.

Thanks for your reply, M.

"I'll often pay the extra to use BHD."

I would, too, but not when I can get a LPL-BFS-LPL for £25 incl. tax and the cheapest workable day return into BHD (routing MAN-BHD-MAN) for £60+.

I personally quite like BFS - especially its observation deck.

I don't think the observation deck is open any more - certainly it was shut last time I was there (mid-December). Probably because us airplane nuts spoil the view from their new business lounge.  Smile There's a new airside food court that overlooks the runway / stand area, though, which is great if you're flying.

Where? It was open at BFS on 16th Dec., 2003.

It was the 11th I travelled through on - I guess it must have been a temporary closure...

Ah, I see. Well, it's not bad for views of the ramp on which scheduled (and presumably charter) airlines park, but, annoyingly, you can't see the cargo apron. However, I saw (from the obs deck) a TNT ABF to the far left of the main ramp, which might often be parked there. Ah well - nothing's perfect.
