Terminal Information

Southampton Airport

Southampton Airport is compact and there’s just one terminal building. Passengers on domestic flights are advised to arrive at the airport an hour before their scheduled flight departure time. As well as standard check-in desks, you may also be able to use self-service check-in machines. It’s a good idea to check with Flybe as to their check-in options and when they advise you to arrive at the airport.

Throughout the airport, free Wi-Fi connection is available for up to four hours. If you need longer than four hours you can pay to extend the service. Alternatively, if you don’t have an internet enabled device, you can get online at internet kiosks located both before and after security.

Once you’re through to the departures lounge, you’ll find a good selection of food, drink and shopping outlets. You can get a pub meal at The Glove Bar & Kitchen, a quick snack at Costa Coffee or a drink and a light bite a The Olive Tree café bar. Shops include WHSmith and a duty free store.

Passengers can make use of a Shop and Collect service whereby any bulky or fragile purchases made at the airport’s duty free store can be left and collected from a designated point upon their return to Southampton.

A Priority Lounge is also available for all passengers, regardless of airline or class of travel. For a fee, you get refreshments, unlimited Wi-Fi and a quiet place in which to work or relax before your flight.

Newcastle Airport

Newcastle Airport is located five miles northwest of Newcastle city centre. There is just one terminal at the airport. In the arrivals hall, there’s a Greggs bakers, a Starbucks, a Whistlestop convenience store and a taxi booking desk. Passengers travelling by taxi can either book a car here or pick one up from the rank outside the terminal building.

You’ll also find a number of car hire companies based in the arrivals hall. There are offices for Avis, Interrent, Europcar, Hertz and Budget. If you do choose to hire a car from the airport, you’ll find the A1, a principal north south route, close by.

There are various public transport options making the journey from the airport to the city centre too. A variety of local bus services stop right outside the terminal building. However, the train and metro both offer a faster journey into the city centre.

The airport metro station is accessed from inside the arrivals hall. Trams depart every 12 minutes from around 6am to midnight, and take around 25 minutes to reach Newcastle city centre. Trains run on a similar schedule and, again, take approximately 25 minutes to make the journey into the city.
