These new flights are in addition to the recent announcement that easyJet will relaunch its route from Newcastle to Amsterdam, with flights taking off from 5 September 2024 and operating twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays throughout the year.

Newcastle Airport has recently invested over £20m in the passenger experience, redeveloping the security search area and refurbishing the majority of catering outlets in the departure lounge. The Airport’s executive lounge has also benefited from a multi-million pound redevelopment and is now marked as one of the ‘flagship’ Aspire Lounges in the country.
