Whether you’re planning a quick drop-off right out the front of the terminal, or want to spend more time with your friends or family before their flight, we have convenient parking options and a range of cafes, bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a drink or meal.

Terminal Forecourt Trial

We are currently trialling a new layout to the existing road that runs past the terminal forecourt. The existing fence will be removed, and the drop-off/pick-up lane will extend the full length of the forecourt area. The inside lane adjacent to the fencing will become a drop-off/pick-up lane, while the outside lane will be a transit lane for all vehicles. Learn more here. 

Pick-up & drop-off zone

At Newcastle Airport passengers can only be dropped off at the Departures end of the terminal and be picked up outside the Arrivals end of the terminal. Please note, in line with Roads and Maritime Service Regulations all pick up and drop off zones are no parking zones.

The pick-up and drop-off zones are for immediate loading and unloading only as we need to keep the zones congestion free to ensure all passengers make their flights and can be picked up with ease. It is unlawful to leave your vehicle unattended in a No Parking zone and therefore failure to comply may result in an infringement notice being issued. 

Please co-operate if you are asked to move your vehicle by a uniformed airport staff member.

To spend more time saying goodbye, or greeting a passenger, parking is available with prices starting at $2.50 per hour. Learn more about Newcastle Airport car parking, or view our maps to help you navigate to and from our airport.
