Parking at Newcastle International Airport
Looking forward to your flight from Newcastle International Airport (NCL)? Maybe you’re going down to London to show those southerners a thing or two about business? Dublin-bound for a legendary stag or hen weekend? Taking the family to Tenerife for sun, sea and sangria? Or treating your better half to a romantic weekend in Paris?
The choice is (almost) endless. But one brilliant decision you’ve already made is driving to NCL and parking your car for the duration. Because getting there under your own steam, in the company of people you (usually) like, is often much more relaxing than public transport. Then, your next best decision is reading this article to work out which kind of NCL parking is best for your needs and budget. We’ve got you covered, with info on everything from economy to valet deals.
And canny parking offers are just the cherry on the cake of Newcastle’s many charms – if you’re travelling from outside The Toon, you should definitely bookend your break with a couple of days to explore this North East cultural powerhouse. With elegant Victorian buildings and bridges, chic hotels and cool contemporary structures, the cityscape looks stunning 24/7. By day, you can browse designer shops and independent stores, lunch at tasty restaurants and enjoy the lovely lilt of the Geordie accent as you banter with inhabitants. By night, lights sparkle on the Tyne as bars and nightclubs buzz with a cosmopolitan crowd of students, visitors and locals.
Great things to do in The Toon include catching legendary live music acts at Sage Gateshead (the stunning silver spaceship building on the banks of the Tyne) and meandering around the boho bars and cafes of trendy Ouseburn. You can also explore the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and seek inspiration from the mind-blowing exhibitions, then (if you’re feeling flush) treat yourself to a show-stopping painting from The Biscuit Factory. And arty sojourns aside, you can cheer on the Magpies (Newcastle United) at St James Park and (if your timing’s right) grab unusual bargains at Quayside Sunday Market.
What does it take to find a fantastic deal on parking at Newcastle Airport? The short answer is: lots of time that you probably don’t have! As usual, there’s tons of information online, but you know as well as we do that there’s often no such thing as ‘a quick Google’. Type in a (seemingly) simple question and you’re flooded with information of wildly varying quality from lots of sources – with no clear way to get a definitive answer.
Well, relax. Because we do that bit so that all there’s left for you to do is sit back, pop on the kettle, calmly compare carefully collated onsite and offsite NCL parking options and choose the one that matches your budget and ticks every box for your requirements.

Now let’s find out more about your official onsite parking options.
Need secure and simple parking, just a short stroll from the terminal? Look no further than Long Stay parking at NCL, which offers parking for all durations. Park Mark secure, with free cancellation and amendments available, it’s only 5-10 minutes from the terminal (depending how easy you want to take it as you sashay inside). To get there from the A1, join the A696 and follow the airport signs for 3 miles. Once you get to the airport, follow the signs to the Long Stay Car Park. It’s a breeze to use too. Just grab an ticket at the barrier, cameras record your registration number, park, grab your bags, lock up and leave. This car park has 24/7 CCTV, security fencing and floodlighting, so peace of mind comes with your ticket too.
Premium Fast Track
This NCL parking option is just as good as it sounds. For starters, it’s the closest car park to check-in – just a 1 minute walk from the terminal (under a covered walkway). It’s Park Mark secure, the spaces are extra-wide, and parking is available for as long as you like. To get there from the A1, take the A696 to Newcastle Airport, and when you get to the airport roundabout, take the 2nd exit. When you reach the next roundabout, take the first exit and look out for the signs for Premium Fast Track. Automated number plate recognition and barrier entry make the whole process hassle-free.
Premium Meet & Greet
Fancy even more of a VIP experience at NCL? Try the Premium Meet & Greet package. This allows you to park securely, right outside the terminal, step out of your vehicle, lock up and let experienced staff take care of everything else. Covid-19 safety measures are in place and the whole process is calm and courteous. To find Premium Meet & Greet from the A1, follow the exact same directions as Premium Fast Track (except look for the signs for Premium Meet & Greet as your final move).
Short Stay 1
This is the best-selling official parking product at Newcastle International Airport. Why? Probably because Short Stay 1 is located right opposite the terminal and offers you a simple, safe and secure place to park. There’s also free cancellation and booking amendments and it’s Park Mark secure. Take a ticket at the entry barrier when you arrive, and the number plate recognition system will record your details. Then park up, unload your luggage, lock up and walk a couple of minutes to the terminal. Keep your ticket – you’ll need to pop it back in the slot at the ticket machine when you leave.
Short Stay 2
Just a 2-4 minute walk from the NCL terminal, Short Stay 2 has pretty much the same benefits as Short Stay 1. To get there from the A1, drive for about 3 miles along the A696 to Newcastle Airport and when you get close to the roundabout, choose the second exit. Take the first exit at the next roundabout and follow the Short Stay 2 facility signage.
