Newcastle Airport launches new ‘premium meet & greet car park’

Development work on Newcastle International Airport’s new ‘Premium Meet & Greet’ car park is now complete – and the facility is now open to the public.

In December last year (2018), the Airport announced its multi-million pound plans to upgrade the car parking facilities – including introducing a new purpose-built meet and greet area. Located just 30 metres from the terminal, the ‘Premium Meet & Greet’ car park allows passengers to drop their car off before heading straight into the terminal.

Inside the purpose-built facility, there is a modern, high-specification waiting area – which hosts an eye-catching light feature with a hotel-style reception where a uniformed member of staff is waiting to collect the passenger’s keys.

The dedicated ‘Premium Meet & Greet’ team ensure the vehicle is available for a hassle-free collection upon return from their trip – making for a personalised experience. High-tech photographic booths have also been installed – which will inspect the condition of each vehicle when it enters and leaves the facility providing peace of mind to passengers.

Dean Ward, Head of Commercial at Newcastle Airport said: “Demand for the meet and greet car parking product has increased dramatically over the last few years. In light of this, it is important that we continue to invest in new infrastructure and technology to further improve the high standards of customer experience.

“We look forward to welcoming our first customers through the facility this week and many more over the busy summer period.”
