Convenient and reliable Newcastle Airport taxi
Newcastle Airport is the primary and busiest airport in North East England and it’s located about 10 km (6.6 miles) north of Newcastle upon Tyne. Instead of waiting in line for a taxi or using crowded public transport after a tiring flight, you can book your Newcastle Airport taxi with Welcome Pickups in advance and enjoy professional, door-to-door service; a seamless, hassle-free travel experience from the minute you reach the Arrivals Hall.
It takes only a couple of minutes to book your airport taxi in Newcastle with Welcome Pickups and you can do so as early as you like; there’s a flexible cancellation policy in place that allows for last-minute changes if needed. Pre-booking can save you valuable time at the airport and take a lot of the stress off your shoulders, especially if you’re not a regular or experienced traveller, or if you’re travelling with little ones. Welcome ensures a smooth arrival with a professional, hand-picked driver waiting for you, even in case of an unexpected flight delay; in that case, your driver will monitor your flight and your pickup time will be adjusted accordingly. After you meet with your driver and they offer a helping hand with your luggage, you can simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the comfortable ride to your accommodation.
Even if the ride with your taxi from Newcastle Airport to the city is short, you can use this time to chat with your driver and ask any questions you might have about the local culture, must-see attractions or the best places to eat; they’ll be happy to give you recommendations and share their knowledge of the city.

Getting to the city centre with a taxi from Newcastle Airport
Newcastle Airport is located approximately 10 km (6.6 miles) northeast of Newcastle upon Tyne. Getting there with a Newcastle Airport taxi takes approximately 15 minutes in light traffic and you can track the route on your mobile if you wish. After you exit the airport parking, your driver will follow A696 and A167 to Newcastle upon Tyne and take the exit toward the City Centre(North)/B1318 from A167.
At Newcastle Airport Roundabout, you’ll take the second exit onto A696 and at Kenton Bar Interchange, you’ll take the third exit onto Ponteland Rd/A167. At the next roundabout, you’ll take the second exit and stay on Ponteland Rd/A167 until you reach another roundabout; there you’ll take the second exit, stay on Ponteland Rd/A167, and after about 3 km use the left lane to take the ramp to City Centre(North)/B1318. You’ll then turn right toward Claremont Rd/B1318, at the first roundabout, take the first exit onto Claremont Rd/B1318, and at the next roundabout, take the fourth exit onto Queen Victoria Rd to enter the city centre. Your driver will then continue on local roads depending on the exact drop-off location you’ll indicate upon booking.
