Newcastle Airport recognises the needs of people with disabilities, and has disabled facilities in its Newcastle airport parking car parks.
The short stay car parks have disabled bays, which are located next to telephone assistance points. Through these assistance points you can arrange for help with your luggage and your transfer to the airport. At the Long Stay car park there are also disabled bays.
The long stay car park has an accessible bus transfer service that is suitable for disabled passengers. Disabled bays are also a feature of Newcastle on-airport parking car park that offers excellent value and is ideally located just five minutes away from the airport terminal.
Airparks Newcastle is another car park that is low in price, but well situated. It features disabled bays and there is a transfer bus running to the airport that is suitable for disabled passengers, including wheel chair users.
Meet and Greet Disabled Parking
Meet and greet parking can be an ideal option for disabled travellers. You simply drive your car to the airport terminal, where you will be met by a driver. The fully-trained driver parks your car for you. This leaves you more time in the airport, and saves you the trouble of having to locate a parking space, then transfer to the airport. The Newcastle Meet and Greet parking service is well suited to disabled passengers; please confirm your special requirements when you speak to a meet and greet representative. It is worth noting that drivers will not be able to park adapted vehicles due to health and safety regulations.
In the Airport
The terminal building is accessed via revolving doors, which can be slowed down by the use of a black press button, with a wheel chair logo. Special assistance is given to disabled passengers during check in. Please speak to your airline provider if you have any special requirements for the flight.
