Please do not travel if you are feeling sick and arrange to be tested for Coronavirus (Covid-19).

We understand the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic may be causing some people to think more carefully about travel safety.

To help you feel more at ease on your journey through Newcastle Airport, we’ve implemented a number of additional health and safety practices.

More cleaning services – we’ve increased the number of disinfectant wipe downs of surfaces, objects and key touch points within the terminal.

More hand sanitiser – additional hand sanitiser stations have been placed throughout the terminal, including check in, Departures and Arrivals.

More signage - we’ve added more signage in and around the terminal, keeping passengers informed of essential hygiene practices, including what to do if you are feeling unwell.

More fresh air - most of our air conditioning systems throughout the terminal are using fresh air, not recycled.

More training - additional training of airport precinct staff has been undertaken to enable them to isolate and escalate any potential COVID-19 cases, which may present at the airport.

We’re also working closely with our retailers and contractors to ensure they are consistently adhering to the Government’s advice around hygiene and social/physical distancing measures.


How you can help reduce the risks

Our passengers can help reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission by applying good hygiene practices and keeping the recommended distance from others.
