How To Get Here
Belfast/Newcastle flights are with Easyjet and fly to Belfast International Airport. You are encouraged to use the Airport Express to travel from the airport to the Europa Bus Centre, Belfast City Centre as the approximate cost of a taxi is £35.00. There are regular buses (Airport Express 300) from the airport to the Europa Bus Centre leaving from the front of the terminal building. The journey time is approximately 45 minutes. Tickets are available from the tourist information desk in arrivals or from the driver and are £7.50 (single) or £10.50 (return). You can then get either the 7a or 7b bus from outside the Bus Centre to Queen’s (or it is a fifteen minute walk). If you have to get a taxi, it would be preferable if you shared with other students and agree one student to submit the claim.
