Terminal Information – Departing
Cardiff Airport only has one terminal which is easy to find your way around. There are two places to grab a refreshment: Caffe Ritazza if you need a pick-me-up and Echo Bar if want to relax with a drink. If you feel like some retail therapy you can blow off some steam at the Nuance Tax and Duty Free Shop, Fat Face, Superdry and Oakley. Note that tax free shopping is unavailable on domestic UK flights. If you have a bit of work you need to finish, or just want to treat yourself, you can book into the airport's executive lounge for £17.50*. Inside you'll find plenty of comfy places to relax as well as complimentary Wi-Fi, snacks, alcohol and newspapers.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Newcastle Airport only has one terminal too. It's about six miles from the city and easy to reach using public transport and taxis, both available outside the arrivals area. The quickest way to reach the city is via the Metro (underground) system. Monument station in central Newcastle is just 20 minutes away, with a ticket price of £3.60*. It's also possible to take the bus. If you're in a hurry and prefer to take a taxi, expect to pay about £15* for the journey.
If you're planning a self drive trip remember to compare car hire from Newcastle Airport first to get the best deals.
You don't need a passport for domestic UK flights. Your driving license is an acceptable form of photographic ID. Try to arrive around 90 minutes before your flight to Newcastle is due to depart. Give yourself extra time to get through security if you're flying during the school holidays, as the airport can become quite crowded. Other busy periods are first thing in the morning and early in the evening, as this is when most business travellers will be using the airport.
What to expect in Newcastle
Newcastle has a similar climate to Cardiff, and the price of food and drink is roughly the same too. The city's nightlife is famous. If you're visiting at the weekend you'll probably bump into plenty of stag and hen parties, as well as general revellers. Newcastle city centre is small enough to navigate on foot, so pack your walking shoes. Attractions like Hadrian's Wall and the Metro Centre are quite far from the city. You can reach them via public transport or rental car. Just like Cardiff, Newcastle can be quite rainy. Bring an umbrella and some waterproofs, even if you're visiting during summer.
