7 locations Geordies can fly to from Newcastle Airport without breaking the bank this August Bank Holiday

From the beaches of Ibiza to a budget city break in Dublin and soaking up sun in Greece, the summer doesn’t have to be over for Geordies

This year's long and hot summer on Tyneside may be drawing to a close but it's not too late for Geordies to jet off for a break abroad from Newcastle Airport this August Bank Holiday.

Many across the region will be counting down the days to the three-day weekend which takes place between Saturday, August 27 and Monday, August 29.

There's plenty going on in the UK from festivals to football matches on those days, but you wouldn't be blamed for eyeing up a last-minute trip to a sun-soaked European location.

The North East is served by Newcastle International Airport and the flight hub has done the region proud this summer.

Where many airports have seen lengthy delays and cancellations, Newcastle Airport has avoided much of that disruption with 98% of passengers passing through security in an impressive six minutes or fewer.

If you haven't booked flights away over the August Bank Holiday, you'll have already missed out on all the best deals.
