Flying the Nest for University

Flying the Nest for University

Congratulations!! You got you’re A-level results (in what was the weirdest A-Level year of all time) and now you get to choose where you are going to study, learn and live for the next 3 or 4 years. Choosing a university is both exciting and stressful, and one of the first considerations is always travel – how are you going to get there, and get home again? This is particularly true if you are looking at universities “across the water”.

Airporter is here to make at least one part of your new adventure stress-free. Airporter connects Derry/Londonderry with the two Belfast Airports. Travelling by yourself is a big part of gaining your independence, and with Airporter you can board at the Foyleside bus stop and arrive at the door of your airport – and save mum or dad a trip across the Glenshane Pass! You can book online at – and keep an eye on our social channels for promo codes and online discounts. You can also buy an Airporter gift certificate – the perfect solution when someone asks what they can get you going to uni! With an Airporter gift card, you have a prepaid amount of credit which you can redeem for all your journeys throughout the year. To buy an airporter gift certificate go to – when you are booking flights, you just have to book your airporter online and redeem your code – very handy.
