Over the weekend, the famous East Belfast footballer’s name had been added to the top right of the existing sign, and covered up with a banner. Other than the main terminal signage, a single green road sign on the entry slip road, and a billboard poster for the George Best charitable foundation, there aren’t many signs of Best’s impact on the airport. Other than the marquee that will be gone by dusk.
I suspect that most operators will continue to know the airport as Belfast City Airport, or more plainly, the Harbour.
If you could name something in Belfast (or Northern Ireland) after a celebrity (dead or alive), what would it be?
