How to get to Newcastle International Airport

The easiest way to get to the North East’s biggest airport is on the Tyne and Wear Metro. Services run to the site on the green line which runs from South Hylton, through Sunderland and Boldon. It heads through Newcastle, Fawdon and Kingston Park before reaching the airport.

The metro takes around 25 minutes from Central Station in Newcastle and around 55 minutes from Sunderland station.

Alternatively, the 787, 777, X77, X78 and X79 bus routes all include a stop at the airport.

Anyone wanting to drive to the site should head to the A1, then use the Kenton Bar interchange roundabout to get on the A696 to head to the airport.
