One of NI’s most checked in bars reopens at Belfast International

Passengers travelling through Belfast International Airport can celebrate normality returning with the opening of the Lagan Bar.

Known as one of the most checked in bars in Northern Ireland, the famous watering hole has been closed for six months during the pandemic. Opening today (Thursday, July 1) punters can enjoy a favourite tipple before their journey.

With travel restrictions easing the airport now offers over 400 flights per week to a total of 25 destinations including Bournemouth, Inverness, Ibiza, Palma and Menorca and more flights are being added throughout the summer months.

Graham Keddie from Belfast International Airport said: “The Lagan Bar is a bit of an institution here for many travellers. We are glad to be able to enhance the overall passenger experience again in the terminal with this offering as more countries are added to the green list. 

After six months closure due to the pandemic, the famous Lagan Bar is open again to welcome passengers for their favourite tipple before they jet off.

“The Airport and our airline partners are well prepared with a range of social distancing, hygiene and testing provisions in place throughout the airport.  As travel begins to open up more, we must ensure that it is done so in a safe manner and ask that passengers  are aware with the new measures in place and familiarise themselves with the rules and requirements around air travel this summer.”
