Belfast International Airport, is a busy commercial hub which handles most of Northern Irelands passenger and air freight traffic, 11.5nm NW of Belfast city and near the village of Aldergrove from which it gets it's former name. It is the second busiest airport on the Island of Ireland after Dublin. Over 5.8 milion passengers passed through its terminals in 2017. The airfield was previously shared with the Royal Air Force base RAF Aldergrove which closed in 2008. There is a thriving Flying Club at Aldergrove (which has probably the most minimalist website you have ever seen!) which offers PPL training and pleasure flights.
