We take airport parking security seriously and always partner where possible with parking facilities that are accredited with the Park Mark Safer Parking Award.

The Park Mark Safer Parking Scheme is a Police Crime Prevention Initiative designed to reduce both crime and the fear of crime in car parks across the UK. Car parks are assessed on their standards of security, maintenance and management practices and only those that fulfil the criteria are accredited with the Park Mark award. Assessments are carried out on an annual basis.

Terminals

Newcastle is a single terminal airport, so there is no need to check which terminal you are flying from when planning your Airport parking.

Our parking deals include on-airport options, so it is easy to navigate from parking through to check-in.

Inside the terminal building you’ll find various facilities and you can use our handy guides to find out what to expect, such as charges for baggage trolleys, how to access free WiFi and where to eat and drink.

Newcastle Airport Hotels & Parking

Need an early start? Travelling with young children? Want to avoid morning traffic jams? Starting your trip with an overnight stay in an airport hotel might be just the ticket.

It can be good value too. If you combine your hotel booking with airport parking, you can usually save on the cost of booking parking and accommodation separately.

Check out our latest Newcastle Airport parking and hotel deals.

While we understand our customers want to know that their car is parked safe and sound while they are away, we also know that value for money is just as important.

Our four plus decades of experience in airport parking means that we have learnt a thing or two over the years and have gathered – and continue to gather – information and data to help our customers secure the best Newcastle Airport parking deal.

Book early to save on your Newcastle Airport car parking

Airport parking charges usually fluctuate according to availability and season, just like most airfares. So, our first money-saving tip is to confirm your airport parking booking as early as possible, especially if you are travelling in peak season.

Our booking data shows, on average, the cheapest time to book parking at Newcastle Airport. The data says that if you confirm your parking booking with APH six months prior to travel, you could save over 45 per cent, in comparison with making a reservation just one week before you fly.

In real money terms, this means paying £34.00 instead of £64.00, for a week’s parking. You’d probably agree that it’s much better to have the saving of £30.00 in your pocket – for holiday treats!

Newcastle Airport Parking Types

Here is all you need to know about finding the right Newcastle Airport parking for your trip.

On-airport short-stay parking: How it works

Perfect for short trips away, short-stay parking at Newcastle Airport allows you to park within a couple of minutes’ walk of the terminal.

Offering quick access to the check-in desks and convenient parking, short-stay parking, such as Newcastle Airport Short Stay Parking 1, allows you to simply find a space, take your luggage and keep your keys with you. And upon your return, you find your car in the same parking bay and drive it away. Just remember to keep your car park ticket safe, for a quick and easy exit!

On-airport car parks, such as Newcastle Airport Short Stay Parking 1, benefit from the tight security that operates within the airport complex.

Here's a quick overview of how on-airport short-stay parking works.

Best for: travellers looking to minimise time at the airport and leave their car within walking distance of the airport terminal. 

On-airport long-stay parking: How it works

Located a little further from the terminal building than short-stay parking, long-stay parking at Newcastle Airport is usually a slightly more economical option. The walk to the terminal is still only five minutes, however.

Finding the car park is easy. You just drive to the airport and follow the signs to Newcastle Airport Long Stay Parking. At the barrier, take a ticket and park your car. Unload your luggage and continue on foot to the terminal.

When you return, walk back to the car park, collect your vehicle, and insert your ticket at the exit barrier.

Here's a quick overview of how on-airport long-stay parking works.

Best for: trips of all durations and travellers looking for a combination of economical and convenient parking.

Off-airport parking: How it works

Off-airport car parks are usually the most economical of all types of airport parking. They are located outside of the airport grounds and usually require a short shuttle bus transfer to the terminal.

Off-airport car parks at Newcastle Airport include Newcastle Airport Park & Fly, which is just a five-minute bus transfer from the terminal. The car park is accredited with the Park Mark Safer Parking Award and has security fencing, barrier controls for entry and exit, CCTV and is patrolled 24 hours a day.

Meet & Greet parking is an on-airport type of parking, which avoids the need to search for a parking space.

Offering the ultimate in convenience, you simply drive to the designated meeting point, usually right next to the terminal, and meet your Meet & Greet operator, who will take your vehicle and park it for you. Your car will be kept in a secure parking facility for the duration of your trip and returned to the terminal for you to collect at the end of it.

History of Newcastle Airport

If you’re flying from Newcastle Airport, we’ve collected the ‘must-know’ information you’ll need in one easy-to-read guide.

Newcastle Airport has its origins in Newcastle Aero Club, which was founded in 1925 and is the oldest flying club in the UK. The club was originally based at an airfield in Cramlington, to the north of the city, but when Newcastle Airport opened in Woolsington, in 1935, it moved to the new site.

The first scheduled service to land at Newcastle Airport was a North Eastern Airways flight en route between Croydon and Perth, Scotland. The aircraft was an 8-seater Airspeed Envoy.

After the second world war, the airport was managed by former RAF pilot, Jim Denyer, who remained the driving force behind the airport’s development until 1989.
In the 1950s, new routes were launched to Dublin, Amsterdam and Dusseldorf and the upswing in package holidays introduced new destinations including the Isle of Man, Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands.

A new terminal building was opened by PM Harold Wilson in 1967, which was further expanded and upgraded in 1980 when the airport reached the milestone of one million passengers in a year. In 1991, the airport became linked to the city centre by an extension to the Metro system and the following year, charter holiday traffic increased by 43%.

The early 2000s ushered in a period of significant growth for Newcastle Airport, gradually transforming it into one of Europe’s most successful regional airports. EasyJet arrived in 2003, Emirates in 2007 and United Airlines in 2014, with the first transatlantic flights.

Terminals

There is one terminal at Newcastle Airport. If you are travelling to the airport by car, it is a good idea to book airport parking in advance, to secure the best prices and availability.

Once inside the terminal building, on the ground floor, you’ll find the check-in areas, currency exchange, café and shops. International arrivals are at the far left, and domestic arrivals are at the far right. Lifts and escalators take you up to the main departures hall, after security, where there are more shops, restaurants and bars.

Check-in

The check-in desks are on the ground floor of the terminal building. All your travel documentation, including passports, should be checked for validity at the time of booking. Some countries require passport validity to be a minimum of six months, but all countries have different requirements. You can refer to the government as well as advice from your airline.

For recommended check-in times, refer to the documentation from your airline. As a general guideline, allow two hours prior to departure time for scheduled flights and three hours prior to departure time for charter flights.

If you are travelling with Ryanair, you must check-in online and print your boarding pass before arriving at the airport. Alternatively, you can download your boarding pass on the Ryanair app. When you arrive at the airport you can proceed directly to security and the departures hall.

There are certain items that you are not permitted to carry in your hand luggage. Check hand luggage restrictions at home before you pack.
