28 reviews of newcastle international airport in English
A pleasant enough airport, it’s light and bright and has all you need to pass a couple of hours.
It has the usual stores ie WH Smiths, boots, accesorize etc but a good duty free store too. For a regional airport it’s good.
Great links to the city centre too, just 25 minutes on the metro.
Only negative is that if it was busy there wouldn’t be much space it would be full very quickly.

I use Newcastle often to make connections to transatlantic flights via Paris, Amsterdam and Heathrow, plus the odd short break in Europe on one of the budget airlines.
The previous reviews are spot on about the layout, facilities etc but I've found on a couple of occasions that security is seriously slow.
Duty Free has some good prices and I've found it a quid or two cheaper than the other airports I transit through.
If you get the chance to use it, the exec. lounge is small but a haven of tranquility compared the the rest of the airside facilities when it's busy. However food selections are seriously restricted to snacks only.

Has all the usual "Duty Free" shops including a Crocs store.
Plenty of coffee shops and fast food kiosks. Most are quite expensive, as one might imagine, but no worse than other regional airports in the UK.
Pleasant enough surroundings but the information screens in the departure lounge are haphazardly placed and there never seems to be enough seating. Again, neither faults unique to this airport.
Really good transport links to Newcastle by metro and a relatively short taxi ride to most central locations.
Nice little airport this, when I say little that's just a figure of speech. From when I 1st used it back in the mid 90's it's grown considerably. Free wifi in the departure lounges & reasonably priced duty free not that I think we get much of that these days. As a local airport it's about as good as it gets in the north east.
Just waiting for my holiday flight to dalaman! Oh & this week the airport is 75 years old.

As far as airports that aren’t in London go, this is quite a damned good one. Friendly staff, unless you happen to get the angry customs officer, but that can happen anywhere, and quite a few places to keep you busy while you wait (dixons tax free, a few duty free shops, a games arcade, computers with internet, a few fast food places and a couple of bars.) Oh yeah, and the all important Boots. Lots of flights to and from, with easyjet and ryanair flying from it, so you can grab a bargain!
Newcastle Airport is one of the best airports in the Upper part of the UK. In 2003 it had an expantion on the terminal building, which was finished in mid 2004 for passengers to pass through each day. The newly built departure lounge had one or two eateries and a bar, it also had a Dixons and Boots. They all still remain, but now with the new Duty Free Biza spreading across the departure lounges floor, there is a verirty of products to buy. Downstairs in the Check-in hall is very spacious and tall. You often see the odd helium balloon floating about from a party of girls going away for a hen night. It has 48 Check -in desks spreading from the older side of the teminal to the more modernised side. In the Summer season it is busstling with holiday makers queing for check-in. It normaly take about 20-30 minutes to get checked in on a busy day. For people comming to drop off/pick up anyone, make sure you time it right as the waiting time cost ALOT. The long term parking is still quite expensive. But if you are parcked in the pick up drop off zone and are parcked for 2 hours the long term car park works out to be cheaper. Newcastle the '101’ bus service by arriva opperation every 10-15 minutes takeing you in to the heart of kingston park, through cramlington then to Blyth. Newcastle Airport is currently having a Hotel built out side the terminal and also a small Petrol station. Plane spotters are now in luck with the development of the south side of the airfiled as they are trasforming it back in to what it was like in the 30’s with a Aircraft veiwing area and also a cafe.Newcastle Airports security board recently invested in a full body sanner so nothing can be smuggled on the the planes such as bombs or illegal drugs, this machine will only be used in neccessary occasions. The Airport Police do regular partols around the terminal armed with tazzers and Kuggers. So in conclusion Newcastle International Aiport is a Great airport wich offer alot of holiday and domestic destonations and tight security team.
This is a great airport, it is easy to get too there is never much traffic to get into it and the weekly parking for the car park is reasonable though it gets a little expensive to pick people up. Downstairs there is a w h smiths and a coffer shop the check in desks are well signs and there are plenty of trolleys around. Upstairs there is a little cafe and nice clean toilets. The departure lounge is spacious with several places to eat and lots of seats to hang around there are several shops and a place you can get your nails done while you are waiting to leave
They dont go direct to some places yet and the airport is nowhere near as big as manchester but the flights tend to be cheap and it is nowhere near as busy
This airport is ok for a provincial airport but although it has been recently extended it is still quite small. There are limited shopping facilities both before and after the check in. The check in desk staff vary in helpfulness and sometimes the queues can be long. A limited number of airlines fly from here and most of them are package holiday or domestic airlines. There are a small number of eating places including a Burger King and there is a small kids play facility.
This is a half decent airport though parking is a tad expensive you can prebook. You dont get a lot of drop off and pick up time if you are going for someone. They have the usual coffee shops, whsmith places downstairs with check in - check in is usually quick. The place is terrible though for you being acosted to sign up for things so avoid the people with clipboards hanging around. When you go to the departure lounge there is a bar and a cafe with a burger king. They have a couple of good shops with a nice boots for last minute purchases. The toilets are plentiful indside and out of the departure lounge they are upstairs. If you live near a metro and have a suitcase on wheels the cheapest way to get gere is to take the metro
This is my local airport so over the years I’ve used it quite a bit. It’s a good airport, not too big but big enough for everything you need from an airport. There are plenty of things to occupy you if your flights delayed.
The only thing to be aware of is if you’re droping someone off at the airport the drop off time has been rediced to 5 minutes so if it’s busy with traffic this can be a bit tight.
I have travelled from Newcastle airport many times and i have to say it is a super airport. I have had delays on a few parts of my holidays but i have never had a problem at this airport. My flights have always departed on time (some were even early) and my baggage has never been lost from here.
There are some nice cafes in the departure lounge and a couple of duty free shops with some bargains!
I always fly to Malaga from here about four times a year, as it is only an hour from Carlisle. It is very easy to drive to and the parking is fab. I use the one next door that drives you in a little mini bus and picks me up when I land. The airport is not too big and the main area where you can get food is comfy to wait for the plane. I love to gt some duty free and often find there’s a lot of great deals on perfume and alcohol. It has a decent bar and the restaurant serves nice food that isn’t too expensive although I often take sandwiches and just buy a coffee. The toilets are always very clean and check in is really quick, leaving loads of time to relax whilst waiting for the plane.
Newcastle airport is a great airport and very easy access to get to it. I have flown for years out of this airport, but recently it has been extended and is now very modern and looks classy. The prices inside the airport for food are very expensive but i did find that the bar wasnt too pricey. The toilets are huge and very nice and clean. I have never had too many problems with this airport although quite afew delays over the years can be frustrating especially for the elderly or people with small children, i dont think this reflects on the airport though, as this happens in most airports. A nice local airport for us northerners.
I’ve used this airport on many occasions and collect people from here fairly regularly and the first thing I always think of is:’Do I have enough money for the car parking?’ The short term parking costs mount up very, very quickly though the long term rates are a bit more reasonable.
The terminal is bright with good concessions if you want something to eat, drink or read while you wait. It’s well signposted but as it’s not that large it’s easy to getaround. Staff have been helpful any time I’ve approached them.
There are good public transport links if you’re visiting or want to leave the car at home. The airport has flights to a wide range of destinations and plenty of airlines fly from here, including budget airlines.
I travel through Newcastle International Airport at least twice per month, and I choose to use Newcastle as it is run very efficiently. The airport rarely has delays and bags are handled promptly. There is only a relatively small duty free airside, and a few little shops and a food court with a Burger King. There is a small bar as well as pay per use computer terminals for checking emails etc. The airport is a fairly modern building, however is starting to look a little worn simply due to the volume of traffic. The departure lounges are basic but always clean. The downside to Newcastle Airport is the way the airplane parking is laid out, you almost always have to get a bus to the terminal which seems to take longer to arrive than the actual plane flight! Being a regional airport there are not as many destinations as served by the bigger airports in the South, however the flights are cheaper because of this.

If you don’t drive you can get a Metro so access is’nt a problem as the airports tucked away outside the city near Ponteland.It’s rather small compared to some but it has everything you could want.Plenty shops and places to grab a snack.Good size departure lounge.We’ve never ever had any problems flying from here.
The airport is right of the city and to the North. It can be accessed by the metro and the buses, also there are taxi’s but sometimes these can be expensive. The airport itself has a lot to offer but still a lot to be desired. It has a wh smith and a starbucks before going through passport control which means while waiting on someone to return or for check in to open you have somewhere to keep yourself occupied. Through passport control there is a large food court and some shops including duty free. Unfortunately this is very expensive! In my own experience having flew from Newcastle a number of times I have never had any problems but I think it depends on when you’re flying as i’ve only ever flew early morning.
