Bombardier is trying to sell Belfast City Airport in Northern Ireland. Less than two miles from the center of Belfast, the downtown airport has attracted growing volumes of regional airline and corporate traffic in recent years. Bombardier acquired the airport when it bought Short Brothers in 1989 along with its airplane factory, which is located on the same site. That factory now builds airframe sections for Bombardier’s CRJ-series regional jets, as well as those for Global Express and Learjet products. Bombardier said it is selling the airport because it falls outside the core business of its European operation.
