Newcastle International has announced its ambitious plans to become a Net Zero emissions airport by 2035.

As the majority of airports across Europe announce their plans to become Net Zero before 2050, the airport has set out to bring forward the target date to align with the end date of its Masterplan and its centenary year in 2035.

Over the next 15 years, a new fleet of electric vehicles will be introduced across the airport.

As well as this, Newcastle International will be taking action to help stakeholders to reduce carbon emissions from flights by working with airlines to encourage more use of the latest, most efficient aircraft such as the A320 NEO – which already operates at the airport.
