Tie downs and electrical plug-ins are available on a first-come, first-serve basis at no charge. The airport has a terminal building that is available to the aviation community, and there is also free wireless internet available at the airport.
Belfast Municipal Airport’s other (closed) runway serves as an ideal area for future commercial aviation development, an area consisting of 13 acres of level, dry land in close proximity to utilities. An access road currently connects this potential business development site with the south phase of the immediately adjacent Belfast Airport Business Park. The City of Belfast would potentially consider any business development proposal for this site that would be FAA-compliant.
