NEWCASTLE International Airport is flying high after it was named the best in the business for the fourth year running.

It was crowned Best UK Airport at the prestigious Airport Operators Association Awards in London.

The honour is awarded by the British Air Transport Association, which includes some of the world’s leading airlines and tour operators.

Newcastle International Chief Executive Dave Laws said: “We are thrilled to be awarded Best UK Airport for the fourth consecutive year by our peers. We continually go above and beyond for our customers to ensure their experience at our airport is enjoyable and that our routes, airline partners and facilities exceed their expectations.
