With regular flights to Dubai, Brussels, Paris, Amsterdam, and Dusseldorf and up to six flights per day to and from London, Newcastle International recognises the needs of business travellers who require frequent direct links from the north of England to key cities across Europe and the rest of the world.

The airport is a vital part of the North East economy, employing 3,200 people on site and thousands more across the region, with an economic contribution of £646.5m. The value of UK exports passing through Newcastle International each year is £173.6m, of which £150m is carried by the daily Emirates service to Dubai.

The airport has worked closely with its local authority shareholders for many years to move the business forward.

At the Airport Operators Association (AOA) Awards ceremony 2011 Newcastle was awarded the “Best Regional Airport in the UK” for the third year running, and in August 2012 users of the Skyscanner website voted Newcastle International the friendliest airport in England.
