Geography of Newcastle Airport
Newcastle Airport is located just ten kilometres north of the city centre and
provides convenient transportation links including close proximity to the A1
road network and its own Metro underground station linking the airport with
the national rail network.
As an air hub, the airport is an important regional gateway for the northeast
coast of England, with several discount carriers providing services to destinations
all over the UK and Europe. In addition it serves several scheduled direct trans-Atlantic
flights to Florida, Toronto and most recently, South Africa.
The A1 highway is the major north-south link, passing through Northumberland
and onto Scotland in the north and south through Durham and eventually onto
London. It bypasses Newcastle city centre, with the A696 providing a link directly
to the airport. The A69 heads west from the A1 to Carlisle (90 minutes), which
links with the A74 north to Glasgow (3 hours). Edinburgh is a two-hour drive
north along the A1 and a little quicker along the A68.
Just 20 minutes from the airport is the picturesque northeast England coastline,
dotted with charming fishing villages and pleasant beaches. A little further
afield is Northumbria National Park packed with deserted beaches and magnificent
castles. The area is also well known for its beautiful, unspoilt countryside
and natural scenery, with colourful and unique villages each offering their
own pubs and tea shops. Durham Castle, Durham Cathedral and Hadrian's Wall are
all within a half-hour drive from Newcastle airport.
