The original £35,000 Newcastle airport was opened as just a humble grass runway with a hangar, workshops and a garage in 1935.
By the 1950s Newcastle airport had begun to be used for package holidays, which boosted its annual passenger numbers to 5,500. At this point destinations included the Isle of Man, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands.
The package holiday market saw a dramatic increase during the 1960s, and Newcastle airport responded to the demands of the market with the addition of a new runway, apron and control tower.
The 1970s saw a number of changes for Newcastle airport. These included being upgraded to Regional International airport status by the Government, and the beginning of US flights (including jumbo jets). These changes resulted in passenger numbers taking a massive increase to 700,000 annually.
A significant redevelopment to the airport facilities took place in the 80s, and passenger numbers increased again to 1.24 million.
In 1994 the terminal building underwent improvements and a large extension to accommodate growing numbers of passengers.
Since then, further extensions and renovations have taken place, meaning that the airport is amply equipped to accommodate the 3.8 million passengers per year that now pass through Newcastle International's gates.
