Belfast City Airport has been named Northern Ireland’s Venue of the Year by disabled access charity Euan’s Guide.

Belfast City Airport, the UK and Ireland’s most convenient airport, has worked hard to make travelling easier for all.

Back in 2010, it was the first airport in the UK to introduce a Changing Places toilet and since then, it has continued to improve its accessibility through several initiatives and its ongoing work with local support groups and its own disability forum.

On top of that, the airport also created its own hidden disabilities lanyards and holds regular familiarisation visits with Northern Ireland based autism awareness groups and guide dog trainers.

“Flying can be a stressful time, particularly for those with access requirements. The actions taken by George Best Belfast City Airport, have helped make travelling that little bit easier for many of the people who use their airport. They are a great example of a business that continues to improve their disabled access, considering the differing access requirements individuals may have.” said Euan MacDonald, Co-Founder of Euan’s Guide

“It is important that our passengers, regardless of ability, feel welcome and comfortable when travelling through our airport” said Bill Doole, Duty Manager at Belfast City Airport

Disabled access information can often be hard to find which is why people with disabilities use the disabled access review website Euan’s Guide to share their own experiences and find new places to visit that have been recommended by other people. The website holds thousands of reviews for all types of places making it easier for people to find great accessible places to go.
