FREE Student Baggage
 
Choose to fly with Flybe and you’ll get two suitcases for the price of one!
 
We understand you’ll want to take your home comforts with you when you move to a new city and thanks to Flybe’s 2-for-1 offer on student hold luggage, you now won’t have to leave any of your favourites behind.
 
Simply pay for one checked bag when booking your flight and check in a second suitcase absolutely free!
 
FREE Airport Drop-Offs
 
Let’s face it, waving a loved one off to a new country is never easy but we can put some ‘good’ in goodbye.
 
At Belfast City Airport, we offer 10 MINUTES free parking in our pick-up/drop off area so parents, family and friends can leave you off at the start of each semester, and welcome you home again with open arms, without being out of pocket.
 
 
Weekend Parking for just £20
 
And when it’s their turn to pay you a visit in your new city, we have special weekend parking deals they can avail of too!
 
Every weekend throughout September, October and November, passengers can park Friday-Sunday for just £20, saving valuable pounds that they can then spend with you on campus or put towards their next visiting flight.
 
Encourage family to pay you a visit and let them know how they can save money on travel with Belfast City Airport.
 
Unlimited WiFi
 
The big move requires some serious planning – you’ll have Netflix and Spotify subscriptions to set up and podcasts and playlists to download. And when you’re travelling back and forth, you’ll have webinars to watch, events to live-stream and eBooks to read too.
 
We know the importance of staying connected (and how valuable mobile data is), that’s why we’re delighted to be one of the only Airport’s in the UK and Ireland to offer FREE, UNLIMITED WiFi.
 
Arrive at the Airport early and make the most of it before any flight.
 
A Taste of Home
 
Worried about becoming homesick? Take a taste of NI to university with you!
 
Tayto cheese and onion, wheaten bread, Suki – unbeatable flavours that you won’t want to miss, and if you feel like sharing, are bound to impress your new flatmates on campus. Stock up at WHSmith or Born and Bred in our departures lounge.
 
Belfast-themed décor could take pride of place in your new halls too, so you never feel too far from home. Visit Born and Bred before your flight for NI-inspired wall prints, frames, bottle openers, notebooks, coasters, posters and more.
