    Passenger numbers up at Newcastle Airport

    Newcastle International Airport has again reported an increase in passenger numbers having catered for almost five million flyers last year.  Representing an increase of 6 per cent – or more than 250,000 – on 2015, more than 4.8 million people travelled through the airport in 2016.  August was its busiest month, with almost 600,000 passengers passing through the terminal; the highest monthly figure since 2007.  The airport also recorded its strongest December for more than ten years, when more than 300,000 flyers travelled.

    A number of new flight routes were introduced in 2016 including services to Berlin, Cancun, Gdansk, Warsaw and Wroclaw. A Madrid service is set to commence in March 2017.

    Nick Jones, interim chief executive at Newcastle International Airport, said 2016 was a “fantastic year with some amazing achievements”.

    “We have seen a number of record breaking months at the airport and to have now seen six years of positive year on year growth is a great accomplishment,” he added.

    “We have worked very hard to build a route network that offers a wide variety of choice to suit the needs of all our passengers.

    “With even more choice available from Newcastle for a number of years, 2017 is set to be a special year for the airport as we expect to surpass five million passengers.”
