Newcastle Airport

Situated close to the Woolsington ward within the state of Newcastle upon Tyne (better known as just Newcastle these days), the Newcastle International Airport is not only the main gateway of its own city, but also covers its surrounding regions like Durham and Cumbria. In terms of passenger traffic, it ranks 10th place among the airports of United Kingdom. The airport was first inaugurated by North Eastern Airways. After surviving WWII, the airport expanded its operations to include longer haul flights such as trips to Amsterdam and soon enough, appealing routes to the regional islands as well. The 1960s saw a major overhaul of the airport’s structure, where modern facilities such as a new proper terminal were installed and the city’s tourism business kicked off. Over time, Newcastle airport continued benefiting from newer and latest installations. This has resulted in a bigger airport and a rise in the airport reputation. Today, the airport sits 9.3km north-west of the heart of Newcastle, and serves as the primary gateway to North East England’s acclaimed attractions and beauty.
