COVID-19 Plan: Safety Measures

The world has been contending with the most significant public health crisis in living memory. The safety and welfare of our staff and passengers is our highest priority and with this in mind we have worked hard to implement a range of robust measures to ensure the terminal is a safe environment for all.


COVID-19 Testing:

We recommend passengers check if a COVID-19 test is required prior to entry into their chosen destination on the GOV.UK website. Newcastle Airport is working in collaboration with two local COVID-19 testing companies to provide convenient, efficient and cost-effective pre-departure COVID-19 tests for passengers who require them. Find out more


This is our Ten Point Plan to ensure the safety of our staff and passengers:

Face masks are recommended within the terminal building

In line with Government guidance, we recommend that masks continue to be worn in the terminal building to protect passengers and staff. Some airlines are still mandating the wearing of masks on their aircraft therefore we strongly recommend passengers check with their airline for the face covering requirements for their flight.

Hand sanitiser is provided throughout the terminal and should be used often

Hand sanitiser stations are provided throughout the terminal for passengers to use at key points in their journey, including on entering the terminal, security search area and the departure lounge as well as the border and baggage halls.

A convenient COVID-19 testing facility is available on site

We are working with NPH Group, a local healthcare provider to provide a convenient COVID-19 testing facility on site at the Airport for passengers who require tests before leaving the UK or on arrival back from their destination. More information can be found here

Intensive cleaning and hygiene regime throughout the building

Enhanced cleaning regimes are in place throughout the terminal with increased disinfecting of regular touch points such as hand rails and buttons. Passengers are reminded of the importance of regular hand hygiene, hand sanitiser is available throughout the terminal for passengers to use.

Full flexibility on all car park bookings

We understand that your travel arrangements may need to change, therefore all of our on site car park bookings are currently fully ammendable and free to cancel if required.
