Getting to Newcastle airport by car
This is by far the most popular method due to convenience, ease of luggage carrying and being able to travel on your own agenda.
The airport lies off the A696, which is about 8 miles off the A1. All North South traffic usually approaches the airport along this route. The A1 is always particularly busy around this section for the following reasons.
- Ring road around Newcastle
- Main airport approach
- Gateshead Shopping centre
Recommend if you are travelling at peak times you allow an extra half hour for this bottleneck.
