Airport quids in thanks to visitors from the Republic

Editor's Viewpoint

There was a time when a large number of people from Northern Ireland used Dublin Airport to get a better travel deal.

This was largely due to the value of the respective currencies and the fact Dublin had a wider range of flights.

The implications of Brexit have changed all that, with the weakening of sterling and the rise in the euro.

Figures show Belfast International Airport has seen its car park revenue increase 250%, helped by the surge in visitors from the south.

The airport should be congratulated on its strategy of attracting these people and of making financial hay while the sun shines.
