BFS needs redevelopment - not just superficial rearrangement of restaurants but proper re-development.

Otherwise it makes more sense for them to squeeze the asset until it becomes more expensive to maintain the old buildings than to build a new one. It is the shabbiest looking medium sized passenger airport in the UK with maybe the exception of Exeter.
it will go nowhere fast, superficial touch ups here and there along with maybe some decent money spent. NI is going nowhere until we sort the hill out.
