About Newcastle Airport  

Newcastle Airport is about to enter the most exciting period of its 70-year history as it grows further in size, aspiration and influence.

There’s never been a better time to join one of the region’s most dynamic teams that is making a difference!  Guided by its deeply held purpose of ‘being the airport the region deserves’, the organisation has emerged a stronger, bolder, and more ambitious business than before the global pandemic.

In the last year, the airport has secured $60M in Federal funding for an upgraded international airfield, it has connected to 6 new destinations, including Cairns and Adelaide, with Singapore now in sight. It has expanded its world class Defence and Aerospace precinct, brought forward major works on its 2036 Masterplan and was recently named 2021 Major Airport of the Year.

The airport’s sights are set, not on the next six months of recovery, but on its ability to generate billions of dollars in economic activity and thousands of jobs over the next two decades.
