We are George Best Belfast City Airport

George Best Belfast City Airport is the only regional airport situated in the ‘heart’ of the city of Belfast. We are committed to delivering a safe, efficient and friendly service to our passengers whilst seeking to reduce the impact of our operation on the environment and on the local community. It takes a great team of people working together to welcome over 2.7 million passengers annually. The Airport is one of the largest employers in East Belfast with 1200 people working across the site, making us a key contributor to economic and social development in the region.

Our Culture

We are immensely proud of the contribution we make to the growing prosperity of NI, not only as a major gateway for business and leisure passengers, but as a catalyst for direct and indirect employment opportunities. Over the years, we have won multiple awards for our commitment to our people, our dedication to addressing environmental issues, along with our strong sense of social responsibility, close links to community and charitable initiatives. Our commitment to Corporate Responsibility will always be at the heart of what we do. As a business we will continue to work hard to protect the environment, invest in our people and to enrich and support the local community, with an emphasis on helping young people realise their aspirations and potential.
Our organisational structure is flat which allows for a high degree of personal independence. We encourage our people to `lead without title’ and work at their ‘best self’ which is supported by a Just Culture. Through consultation with staff we developed a set of values – Respect, Accountability, Openness, Care and Passion. These values are the core principles that guide the way we do business. They are also aimed at motivating and encouraging staff to embrace our CR initiatives. We place a strong emphasis on people development, offering internal coaching, mentoring and sponsoring further qualifications for continued professional development. We are dedicated to providing our employees with fantastic opportunities to grow, develop and have successful and rewarding careers.
