Belfast International Airport is located 6 miles/11 kilometres from Antrim and 11.5 miles northwest off Belfast in Northern Ireland. It was formerly known and is still referred to as Aldergrove Airport, after the village of the same name lying immediately to the west of the airport. Belfast International shares its runways with the Royal Air Force and RAF Aldergrove, which otherwise has its own facilities.
Over 4.5 million passengers travelled through the airport in 2009, a 13.6% decline since 2008. Belfast International is the busiest airport in Northern Ireland and the second busiest airport on the island of Ireland in terms of passenger numbers after Dublin Airport, and is followed by Cork and Shannon. It is the larger of two airports which serve Belfast; the other being George Best Belfast City Airport.
The airport is owned by Abertis, the same company which owns Stockholm Skavsta and Cardiff Airport and is concessionary to Orland Sanford International Airport and London Luton.
The airport operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
