Car hire firm sets up shop in Belfast City Airport
Global car hire company Enterprise Rent-A-Car is to open a new branch in George Best Belfast City Airport with the creation of seven new jobs.
Enterprise already has eight other branches in Northern Ireland, including a site at Belfast International Airport.
The company said setting up in the arrivals hall of Belfast City - it was previously off-site - meant it was now present in all the UK and Ireland's main airports.
There are also Enterprise sites at Mallusk in Newtownabbey, Boucher Crescent in south Belfast, and Cromac Street in the city centre.
Diane Mulholland, Enterprise general manager for Northern Ireland, said: "More than 6,500 people travel through Belfast City Airport each day and for many, hiring a car is the most flexible and practical choice of onward travel.
"A dedicated on-site counter and customer space at the airport is the best option for our customers. This move is an extension of our strategy to offer services at key transport hubs across the UK."
She said the opening was encouraging for business in Northern Ireland: "The new business and new jobs that we are creating reflect our ongoing investment in Northern Ireland, as well as our commitment to aiding the local community, both economically and socially."
Five of the new jobs are part of Enterprise's global management trainee programme.
The company was founded in 1957 and has over 7,000 sites - including over 390 throughout the UK.
