Lounges & Amenities
For some, part of the excitement of going on holiday is the chance the explore and wander around the airport while waiting to board. We’ve all been there, bored of flicking through our books and newspapers before excitedly going off on a stroll and not knowing what we were going to find.
If this sounds like you, then you’re in luck, as Newcastle International Airport has a whole host of different shops, lounges and eateries to explore, and who knows, you may find a bargain or two!
If the first words you look for are ‘DUTY FREE’ then there a whole host of shops available for you to pick up gifts, or that special something you’ve had your eye on but wanted at a slightly more wallet friendly price. The World Duty Free department in Newcastle International Airport has everything you’d expect from a duty free shop, offering fragrances from brands such as Armani, Issey Miyake and Yves Saint Laurent, make-up and skin products from Givenchy, Benefit and Bobbi Brown, sunglasses from Ray Ban and Tom Ford, and watches for all the family. This is just the tip of the iceberg, as there are far more brands than you could imagine, as well as sweets and confectionary for a pre-flight treat (or post-flight, you’re on holiday after all!)
You’ll also find retail spots from established high street regulars like JD Sports, WH Smith, Accessorize and Boots, fashion from Traveller, electronics and accessories from Dixons (don’t forget those travel plugs!) and tax-free goods from Cuba Lily.
It isn’t all about shopping though, as you may well want to treat yourself to some relaxation after the stresses of getting to the airport, checking in, security etc. Your bags are gone, you’ve got a few hours until you board, so why not take a trip to Aerospa for some much-needed R&R? Here you can get massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, even haircuts, no matter your age, sex, or gender. You can even book these online, to make sure you have a spot reserved for you as and when you need it.
Got the kids with you? No problem, take them to the Namco arcade and see if you can beat them at some of the classics because let’s face it, they’ll probably have your number at the newer games! For younger kids, the Aspire Lounge in Newcastle Airport features the Airside Andy Play Pod which features child friendly tablet-computers full of games and activities to keep the little ones entertained.
It’s important to keep energised and to stave off hunger and thirst, so check out Newcastle International Airport’s range of eateries and bars. From fast food favourites like Burger King and Upper Crust, Flying Hippo diner for all the family and Caffé Ritazza for a nice drink and a sit down – recommended for some excellent ‘people watching’. For alcoholic drinks, there’s Cabin, Bar 11 and the Beer House, with the latter two also having their own smoking areas for patrons. Keep in mind your alcohol limits though, drink slowly and responsibly, as passengers deemed too drunk may be barred from boarding their flights. And finally, no trip to the North East of England (maybe even just ‘no trip to England’) is complete without a savoury favourite from Greggs. Luckily Newcastle International Airport has its own Greggs. Before security. Open 24 hours. Music to our ears.
Newcastle International Airport also has a variety of lounges which are bookable if you intend to wait in comfort and quiet. There’s the British Airways lounge strictly for those flying with BA, and is ideal for those travelling through Newcastle International Airport for business reasons, as the BA lounge is equipped with phone, fax and internet facilities. The British Airways lounge even has a small library and television area for those stopping by for more casual reasons.
For everyone else there is the Aspire Lounge, which is bookable online for a fee, and features a range of complimentary food and drink options, from bacon sandwiches and fresh pastries for breakfast, to a quick alcoholic pick-me-up if you’re that way inclined. Customers can also upgrade to the AspirePlus Lounge which is more opulent than the regular lounge and features a roster of attentive staff to cater to your needs and whims.
Services and Facilities
The airport can be a stressful experience, especially if travelling with children, or if you or a member of your party have disabilities. Newcastle International Airport has a range of services available to make the whole airport experience as stress-free as possible, but it is important to pre-plan and pre-book any services or assistance you may require.
Aside from standard toilet and baby changing facilities, Newcastle International Airport is also proudly home to Changing Places toilets; toilet facilities for disabled passengers that contain more features and have greater space than regular disabled toilet facilities.
People of faith are warmly invited to use the on-site prayer room and facilities. The prayer room is open 24 hours a day and is open to people of all faiths and walks of life, on level two of the main terminal building.
For those travelling through Newcastle on business, there are the services in the lounges listed above, as well as fast track parking and premium WiFi services available at a small fee.
