Belfast International Airport Rated Worst In UK

Long queues, crowds and limited shopping options have led to Belfast International Airport being rated as the UK's worst airport.

The County Antrim facility achieved an overall score of 42% in a survey by consumer magazine Which? that rated 30 British airports and major terminals.

The facility also scored one star in the categories of seating, staffing and queuing at security and came just behind London Luton at 43% and Manchester T3 on 47%.
