Newcastle Airport’s Manager Corporate Affairs, David Nye, said that, “it has been a busy quarter for Newcastle Airport largely attributed to events such as the RAAF Air Show, P&O Cruises commencing operations from Newcastle, Norfolk Air re-commencing services, and the July and September / October school holidays.

“In addition to this, Jetstar has made an announcement that is will increase its services to and from Melbourne later this year by 3,500 seats each week.”
