Newcastle Airport Information

The airport is currently undertaking an exciting terminal development which will provide an enticing range of facilities for our travelling customers, making Newcastle International an airport of the 21st Century.

During this period of improvement, current visitor facilities are restricted. The landside viewing gallery and food court have now been closed. We have remaining two Costa coffee shops serving delicious coffees, toasted sandwiches and a selection of cold drinks. WH Smith and a selection of vending machines serving sandwiches, snacks and drinks are also available.

Opening soon will be 'Greggs' which will sell a selection of sandwiches, refreshments and pasties.
We are currently working on places to expand the facilities available to our visitors and we will launch these as soon as possible.
