Belfast to Basel

Hi,

This is a refresh of a query posted by someone else in 2010.

What are the most convenient options when travelling from Belfast (George Best/City airport, not Aldergrove/International airport) to Basel. I would prefer to be sitting on a train (working or relaxing) than waiting in/clearing security in an airport.

Leaving via Dublin or arriving in another city Zurich or a French or German airport.

Thank you

Re: Belfast to Basel

As far as I know, there are no flights from Belfast City to anywhere in Switzerland. Even Easyjet only fly direct from Aldergrove to Geneva during the ski season. My wife often flies Aer Lingus in and out of Dublin, catching the bus up to Belfast. I think that is your only option.
