Belfast International Airport’s much-loved bar is currently closed due to staff shortages.
The Lagan Bar is known as one of the most checked in bars in Northern Ireland, where people enjoy a swift pint or their favourite tipple before embarking on their journey abroad.
But in a statement on Tuesday, January 4, airport staff said they had to make the “difficult decision” to close the bar this week.
Belfast International Airport said: “Due to a number staff shortages the difficult decision has been made to close The Lagan Bar.
“Passengers can still purchase drinks, food and snacks in Sip and Stone and Starbucks.
“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you and look forward to welcoming you back soon.”
The Lagan Bar has already suffered months of closure throughout the pandemic.
It is one of a number of establishments which has been forced to close as a result of staff shortages, as Omicron continues to spread across Northern Ireland.
A number of venues have closed or reduced trading hours to protect staff and customers, including The Spaniard, Mourne Seafood Bar and The Barking Dog in Belfast.
