Air Quality

Newcastle International Airport has a strategy for managing air quality which covers monitoring and assessment as well as future predictions of the impact of operations on local air quality.

Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) monitoring is carried out using diffusion tube analysis. The tubes are located at 22 locations around the airport site and are sent regularly to Newcastle City Council for analysis.

The airport company is part of the UK Nitrogen Dioxide diffusion tube network which provides a nation-wide picture of concentrations of this important traffic-related pollutant.
