Work is underway at George Best Belfast City Airport to improve access to the terminal for passengers using taxi and bus services. The airport say that the latest phase of work is a continuation of the infrastructure investment announced last year, aimed at enhancing the overall passenger experience.
Value Cabs has been the airport’s preferred taxi provider since 2013 with the contract recently renewed for three years with the option to extend to a further two. Mark Beattie, Operations Director at Belfast City Airport, said: “Since completing upgrades within the terminal last year, our attentions have now turned to the exterior front of house area. “A covered walkway has already been completed connecting our Premier Car Park to the main terminal, only a two minute walk away. “This current phase of works will significantly extend the size of the Value Cabs rank at the front of terminal with separate areas for account and walk-up passengers. The bus halt will be relocated at front of terminal to ensure accessibility to the terminal and covered walkway.” Christopher McCausland, Managing Director from Value Cabs, said: “With 2.5m passengers using the terminal each year, our relationship with Belfast City Airport is key to the development and growth of our own business. “As the preferred taxi supplier with exclusive front of house access, Value Cabs provides the most convenient service for customers at Belfast City Airport. “The reconfiguration of this area will further improve the pickup service we offer to passengers with capacity for additional vehicles.” Image credit: Belfast City Airport
