Welcome to Newcastle Airport's masterplan for 2030.

We have published two earlier masterplan documents, in 1994 and 2003. This third masterplan is currently in its draft stage, and outlines possible development requirements up to 2030 so that our neighbours and other stakeholders understand how the airport might change.

Using the links on this page you can view or download the full masterplan document and the masterplan summary leaflet. The public consultation ended on 31st October 2013 and the masterplan has now been adopted.

Newcastle International Airport has been serving the people of the North East for more than 75 years. In 2012 we helped enable 4.4 million passengers fly to destinations all over the world.

With a catchment area stretching from the Scottish Borders to Cumbria and North Yorkshire, Newcastle International is among the largest regional airports in the UK.

Economic impact statistics

The masterplan outlines the airport’s development up to 2030 and the economic and social impact it has in the North East. Currently the airport supports 7,800 jobs across the region and by 2030 this will rise to 10,000. 

The airport delivered £646 million to the regional economy in 2012, and by 2030 it is estimated that this figure will grow substantially to up to £1.3 billion.
