By John Mulgrew

Belfast International Airport says it will carry a record 5.7 million passengers this year.

It says it has broken its passenger numbers achieved in 2007, which was 5.24 million, with five weeks left before the end of the year.

Belfast International Airport managing director Graham Keddie, said:

“It has been a record-breaking year for Belfast International Airport — and I would like to thank all our passengers, airlines, concessionaires, stakeholders and particularly all our staff for their efforts and support.

“Anyone travelling through the airport will notice how busy it is and we are looking forward to 2018 being even better.”

To celebrate the achievement, the airport awarded one lucky passenger two tickets to any destination which it flies to.
