Newcastle Airport closes runway


Flights in and out of Newcastle Airport have been suspended due to flooding along the runway.

The unfavourable weather forecast means the closure is currently scheduled to remain in place until Midday Wednesday 24 March.

Regular assessments of the airfield will take place between now and then and may result in an earlier resumption of flights.

All people booked or looking to fly to or from Newcastle Airport between Sunday evening and Wednesday should contact their airline directly for more details.
