Belfast International Airport joins the call to modernise liquor licensing laws in NI

23 March 2016

Hospitality Ulster has welcomed the backing from Belfast International Airport in its fight to force the NI Assembly to update the archaic liquor licensing laws here.

Graham Keddie, Managing Director, Belfast International Airport said today:

"We are keen to get right behind this campaign to modernise the liquor licensing laws in Northern Ireland. We need to ensure that the tourists and visitors that we bring here gain the fullest experience that we can deliver.

"Legislation that is no longer fit for purpose helps no one and only serves as a hindrance and a barrier to growth.

"The increase in visitor numbers, air routes and the growth at the International Airport is evidence that people do want to come here. Now we have to live up to their expectations as a modern European destination and give our hospitality sector the tools to do the job.”
