At Newcastle Airport our vision is to be the airport the region deserves.  

We want our passengers to enjoy their journey through the airport, whatever their travel purpose - visiting friends, taking a family holiday or travelling for business.

Our employees are crucial to the delivery of a seamless passenger experience and the overall success of our airport. We take time to invest in our people, ensuring they are driven to achieving the best results for our region. As our region continues to grow, so does our airport, creating exciting career opportunities for those who take a dynamic and agile approach to their jobs.

We set ourselves ambitious social and environmental goals, striving to be a leader in the provision of sustainable airport services and infrastructure. We take responsibility for the impact our business has on employees, stakeholders, the local community and the environment we operate in.  

We are Australia’s 6th largest regional airport and in 2019 we saw 1.284 million passengers pass through our terminal.

Newcastle Airport has direct flights daily to Brisbane, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Sydney, Canberra, Ballina and Dubbo. Our first international route to Auckland commenced operation in 2018, and we’re a hub for international flights from Brisbane, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.

Prior to Covid-19, Newcastle Airport contributed more than $1.16 billion to the state’s economy each year, including $300 million direct to the visitor economy which supported over 5,700 full-time employees across tourism and our airport cluster.

Our regional airport is expected to generate more than 3,000 additional jobs and passenger numbers are anticipated to double, possibly even triple current numbers travelling through Newcastle Airport by 2036.

Recently announced as a Special Activation Precinct (SAP) by the NSW State Government, our airport adjoins both the RAAF Base Williamtown and Australia’s newest defence and aerospace precinct, Astra Aerolab. Anticipated to generate more than 15,000 jobs statewide, the precinct signals a new era of investment for the region and unlimited potential for the airport and Astra Aerolab in the future

We offer employees a high-performance culture, whilst still maintaining a strong focus on work/life balance, mental wellness (as an ambassador for Mentally Healthy Workplaces for Safework NSW) and a family friendly atmosphere. In addition to our unique workplace, we offer the amazing Newcastle lifestyle!

Already a great place to live and work, the Hunter Region is entering a new and exciting phase of revitalisation that will see it flourish into an increasingly important economic and tourism destination. We are the gateway to Australia’s largest regional economy, with more than $43 billion annual output and 48,500 businesses.

We seek talented professionals looking to start their career or take the next step in an already established career. A job at Newcastle Airport provides professional opportunities for those with a passion for aviation or tourism, a desire to contribute to the region, and those seeking to create a stress-free passenger experience.

We are proud to offer employees a range of benefits and rewards, including flexible working arrangements, a rewards and recognition program, professional development and a corporate fitness package.

Newcastle Airport offers career opportunities and progression pathways across a diverse range of professions, including management, operations, brand, technology and people.

Our passengers have again rated Newcastle Airport as one of the country’s best, with the 2019 international Airport Service Quality (ASQ) survey results giving the airport a very healthy endorsement. Customers rated the airport as the top achiever across a range of indicators, including car parking facilities and affordability, ease of connection to other flights and the short wait time at security, amongst others.

The ASQ survey, which samples over 1,400 passengers, shows us that we’re on the right track to achieving our purpose of being the airport the region deserves.
