There’s exciting news for Belfast International Airport following the approval of plans for a major extension to the main terminal building. Approved by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council’s Planning Committee, the extension will include an enhanced security area, allowing passengers to reach the terminal more efficiently, whilst a refresh to the front of the terminal building will modernise the appearance of the airport entrance.
Works are set to begin at one of Antrim’s most historic sites to refurbish Steeple House to its former glory.
