Aircraft from Newcastle land at both airports in Belfast: Belfast City (BHD) is served by Flybe, Easyjet on the other hand, lands at Belfast international (BFS). Transfer to the city centre is convenient and fast from either airport. The catchment area for Belfast Airport is large and comprises much of northern Ireland, so there are also transport options to many other destinations throughout the country. Located only 6 miles from the city, the departure airport in Newcastle is just as easy to reach from the city centre. The total journey time need therefore not necessarily be much longer than the duration of the flight. By taking hand luggage only, passengers can also avoid the time needed waiting at baggage reclaim as well as the extra costs incurred by low-cost airlines for hold luggage.
