Newcastle International Airport

Newcastle International Airport

The company structure of Newcastle International Airport is the result of an agreement by the airport’s seven local authority shareholders to enter into a Public Private Partnership with Copenhagen Airports in May 2001. As part of the establishment of a PPP for the future the local authority shareholders sold 49% of their equity interest in the Company to Copenhagen Airports and the Company has entered into a 15 year Technical Services Agreement with Copenhagen Airports.

Newcastle Airport was opened on 26 July 1935 by Secretary of State for Air, Sir Phillip Cunliffe-Lister. The airport cost euro35,000 to build and consisted of a grass runway, clubhouse, hanger, workshops and a garage. The runway lights consisted of a series of empty oil drums that could be filled with oil rags and lit in advance of an approaching aircraft.

The first scheduled service calling at Newcastle Airport was a flight between Croydon and Perth, Scotland, operated by North Eastern Airways using an 8 seater Airspeed Envoy aircraft.

Newcastle International Airport is committed to making sure that the Airport is run in a way that has minimum impact on the surrounding environment.

Newcastle International is one of the region’s greatest success stories. It brings wealth, jobs, new businesses – as well as new horizons – to the North East. A busy and thriving airport means a healthy and growing economy. They want to build on that success. They intend to move into the 21st century as one of Britain’s leading regional airports. They want to create more jobs, more wealth, more buzz. Their plans are bold, ambitious and exciting. But they are also, they believe, realistic, attainable and worthwhile. This is a vision not just for their future, but for yours as well.
