Supporting our community

Newcastle Airport is committed to working with and contributing to the local community through our Community Engagement Program. As a significant economic contributor to the region as a whole, Newcastle Airport also takes pride in 'giving something back' to the community that it operates within.

We believe it is vital that the local community shares in the success story of Newcastle Airport. Therefore the Airport actively engages with its surrounding communities whilst endeavouring to listen to and address their concerns. As part of our community engagement program, Newcastle Airport is working in partnership with its neighbours to help foster a sense of community and pride in the Airport's operations.

Newcastle Airport aims to be an outstanding corporate citizen and we are proud to support a number of initiatives that promote positive relationships with our local community.

Business and tourism


Major partner of Altogether Perfect

Altogether Perfect is an initiative of Newcastle Convention Bureau, Destination Port Stephens, and Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association to attract business meetings, conferences, and events to the greater Hunter region.

As the gateway airport to this region, we proudly fly the flag as major partner.  Our region, which is Altogether Perfect, brings the city, the country, and the coast all in one region. From rolling hills to stunning beaches, from wine tasting to whale watching, and from intimate small group spaces to grand halls hosting hundreds; you'll be surprised by the quality and diversity offer, all within 45-minutes of each other.

Separately, each destination is quite special but altogether, they're perfect.
