Belfast City Airport
Originally opened in 1938, as Belfast Harbour Airport, Belfast City has a rich history and was home to the development of several famous aircraft. It wasn't until 1983 that it opened its doors as a commercial airport and then underwent continual development until 2001 when a new terminal was
opened. In 2006 the airport was renamed in memory of the footballer George Best and is now a major base for Flybe and handles around 2.5m passengers each year.
In 2008 Belfast City Airport approached Rezcomm, looking for a solution that would support its ongoing development by promoting city break destinations and make it easy for customers to book through the airport's website. It was important that these city breaks highlighted its routes to Amsterdam and Barcelona, as well as its flights to key UK destinations. Combined with improvements to the airport since the travel system has been integrated passenger numbers have increased by 4.5% in 2009 to 2.6m, and to a record 2.7m in 2010. Such innovations have helped Belfast City come a long way from the days when its first passenger terminal was comprised of converted sheds and a Nissen hut, to achieve todays status as a busy hub for Northern Ireland. With Rezcomm's implementation of its holiday booking service the airport has a system that continues to make life easier for its passengers, both now and in the future as the airport continues to grow.
