Apologies if this has been asked before-are ATC operational in both airports 24/7?

Thanks for any info in advance

There are folks with first-hand experience but as far as I know:

Belfast Radar ( EGAC approach ): 06:30 to 22:00 with out-of-hours to 23:59. Tower the same.

Aldergrove Radar and Tower are 24 / 7, occasionally consolidate on one frequency during the night but it has been a long time since that occurred.

Aldergrove Director occasionally but rarely online.

Cheers Smudge.

The question arose out of a chat with someone about the Air Ambulance and the PSNI. My chum seemed adamant that after 0330 hours and before 0600, neither could operate but this didn't seem right to me
