Belfast International Airport Security To Be Upgraded

Belfast International Airport has announced expansion plans for its security area, after a number of complaints in recent months.

The facility will add two extra search lanes to speed up the security clearing process.

It follows reports of missed flights, chaotic scenes and long delays.

To facilitate the upgrade, the six current lanes will be reduced to five while work is ongoing. Passengers are warned they could face further delays in the meantime.

It is expected to be completed around the middle of March.
