George Best Belfast City Airport or Aerfort Chathair Bhéal Feirste in Irish (IATA: BHD, ICAO: EGAC) is an airport in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The airport has a single runway operation, situated in East Belfast only 3.2 kilometres (2 miles) from Belfast City Centre. It shares the site with the Short Brothers/Bombardier aircraft manufacturing facility. It began commercial operations in 1983.

The airport was formerly known as Belfast City Airport until it was renamed in 2006 in memory of George Best, the famous footballer associated with East Belfast.

The airport handled 1.2 million passengers in 2003, a 3.5% increase than the previous year. A subsequent program of building and refurbishment has further increased its passenger and plane capacities. Passenger numbers in 2004 were over 2 million.
