Belfast International renamed Westeros Airport

Belfast International Airport has been renamed Westeros Airport following the huge success of popular TV series Game of Thrones. Large portions of the show are filmed in Northern Ireland, and a large scale ‘Welcome to Westeros’ sign will now greet the 5.8 million people that use the airport each year.

HBO Home Entertainment has collaborated with Belfast International Airport and Northern Ireland Screen to take over the airport and celebrate the region’s eight-year, long-standing connection to the show. Filming has taken place in multiple location across the country, including Causeway Coast and Glens, Quoile, and the Mourne Mountains in County Down.

Graham Keddie, managing director of Belfast International Airport, said, “We are delighted to partner with HBO UK and NI Screen to showcase Northern Ireland as the home of Game of Thrones.

“As the principal airport for Northern Ireland, we look forward to welcoming the hundreds-of-thousands of passengers, as well as meet and greeters, that will be traveling through the terminal over the festive period and will be able to visit Westeros, right here, at Belfast International Airport.”
