Domestic Arrivals

Welcome to Newcastle Airport – gateway to the greater Hunter Region

Greeting Family and Friends

All domestic flights arriving at Newcastle Airport are processed through Gate 6 or Gate 7. Family and friends waiting to greet arriving passengers can meet them in the domestic arrivals lounge, near the baggage carousels. Cibo Café located at the entrance is the perfect place to grab an espresso coffee and a bite to eat while you wait.

There is a dedicated car pick-up zone directly opposite the arrivals exit doors. Vehicles picking-up passengers must be attended by the driver at all-times and can only be in this area for a maximum of two-minutes. It is a federal offence to leave vehicles unattended and you risk a fine. The best parking options for greeting family and friends is in short stay car park 1, which costs $5 for up to 1-hour, or in long stay saver which costs $2.50 for up to 1-hour.

Our car rental desks are located just outside the domestic arrivals lounge to the left and 100 metres along a covered walkway. To oraganise your hire car before you arrive please visit our car rentals webpage and use the rental car calculator to search, compare prices and book a vehicle.
