George Best Belfast City airport is slightly further away from Dungannon – at 36 miles – and smaller than its competitor. Its relative lack of size, however, doesn’t stop it providing a comprehensive selection of flights, with planes coming in from Liverpool, Birmingham, Newcastle and European cities such as Amsterdam and Barcelona. Six airlines offer flights in and out of the airport, and, in 2013, it handled more than 2.5 million passengers.
The facilities at both airports are what you would expect from up to date transport hubs, offering everything you need to step off your flight and immediately begin enjoying your visit to Dungannon. Once the flights have landed, passengers at either airport can change their money at a bureau de change, pick up a bite to eat and then collect the keys to a rental car. If your flight has left you feeling somewhat the worse for wear, then you can take advantage of the hotels which are literally next door to each airport, before travelling on to explore Northern Ireland.
Reaching Dungannon after your flight
Both airports have a taxi rank immediately outside the entrance and public transport into Belfast city centre, from where buses and coaches can be taken to Dungannon. If you want to take control as soon as you step off the flight, however, then a hire car will enable you to set off straight away onto the M1, past the southern shore of Lough Neagh and into the heart of Dungannon. From your flight to your hotel it will take just over an hour.
