Newcastle Airport has carried out a £20m investment ahead of the busy summer season.

Passengers will notice a significant difference, including a new security search area and transformed catering outlets.

Changes in the security search area include new equipment allowing passengers to leave all liquids and electronics in their hand luggage, making the security screening process smoother and more efficient.
