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.
When you are travelling through our airport please practice the following:

- cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue or a flexed elbow; and

Make sure you stay at home if you are sick and arrange to be tested for Coronavirus (Covid-19).
