The port capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast offers an intriguing blinding blend of modern culture and architectural heritage. The city’s colourful and often turbulent history is evident in everything from its Edwardian townhouses to the trendy bars dotting cobbled streets, as well as in its ultramodern Titanic Quarter.

Although the capital has plenty to offer all year round, the summer is undoubtedly the most popular season. The city is also alive with festivals in the spring and autumn, such as St Patrick’s Day, which takes place in March.

How to survive the flight to Belfast?
No matter where you’re coming from, flying can be a pleasurable experience if you’ve prepared well enough. We’ve put together a list of handy tips that will help get your Belfast holiday started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First and foremost, put in your passport, important documents, credit cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll need some entertainment to help pass the time. A thrilling novel and a tablet crammed with your favourite movies are good options. If you intend to catch more than just forty winks, a quality neck pillow and a pair of noise-cancelling headphones will also come in handy. Finally, make room for a few toiletry items to ensure you arrive looking fresh and raring to go.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Pack all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your checked luggage. Any gels or liquids in your carry-on bag larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by security. Pointed or sharp objects, like your beloved pocket knife, and products which are flammable or explosive, such as flares, bleaching agents and gasoline, are also restricted.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The best way to ensure a comfortable flight often lies in your choice of clothes. Prepare for temperature changes by bringing layers. This will keep you nice and warm if the cabin gets too cold. Shoes like flip flops and heels are best left in your checked suitcase. Even though they may be your favourites, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like sneakers. Your feet will thank you later.
  • Caused by lengthy periods of inactivity, DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a serious condition that can affect some passengers on long-distance flights. But the good news is there are proven ways to reduce the risk of developing it. Keep your fluids up, walk up and down the aisles as often as you can and wear compression socks or tights.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Belfast?
Being prepared before your flight will help make your trip to Belfast a breeze. Check out our top tips for a swift journey past security:

  • Keep your boarding pass and ID someplace easily accessible. They’ll be the first things you’ll be asked to present to airport security.
  • Next up is the X-ray machine. Remove anything on you that is likely to beep. This includes things like headphones or earphones, as well as heavy coats or jackets. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
  • Your electronic gadgets like phones and laptops will also have to go through the machine to be scanned. Don’t worry though, you’ll be back online in no time.
  • Can’t travel without your favourite hand and nail cream? No problem. As long as the volume is no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-close bag, it’s fine to bring with you in your carry-on bag.
  • Slip-on shoes are a good footwear choice as you’re less likely to be asked to remove them when going through security. Boots and other heavy-style shoes are often subjected to additional screening.
  • Take all prohibited items out of your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp or pointed objects, pack them in your checked baggage. They won’t be allowed on board and will be confiscated.
