Travelling with Children

Newcastle Airport is a family friendly airport. Whether your little ones want to go and buy their favourite comic or get some treats from World Duty Free, there are many ways to keep your children entertained. Not forgetting the great view of the airfield from the departure lounge - the perfect spot to watch planes navigate the skies, and keep both children and parents fascinated.

Baby Milk and Nappies

Boots now stock the full range so you can ring ahead to check they can fulfil your order 5 days before you travel or simply shop when you are in store.

There is no need to order online anymore, simply collect it from Boots after the security search area. Call the Boots store at Newcastle Airport on 0191 271 6166.

Baby Change

There are four baby-change stations situated throughout the airport – two before security and two once you've been cleared. They are all clearly signed and located alongside the toilets. There is also a Boots in the departure lounge, just in case you forgot to bring some spare nappies!

Play Areas

With its arcade atmosphere, Namco Games will draw in many older children. There are arcade games, slot machines, an air hockey table, and crane games where you can start your holiday with a new cuddly toy! Just make sure your children want to leave in time for their flight...

Kids can now enjoy the best pre-flight entertainment in our Aspire Lounge thanks to the brand new Airside Andy Play Pod. These pods include child friendly tablets, preloaded with a range of games to keep your little ones occupied while you relax before your flight.
