Newcastle Airport was opened in 1935 during the Second World War, and the airport did not play a major role due to the fact the main airport at the time was found in Cramlington. After the war it was decided to concentrate on the development of Newcastle Airport. In the 1960's a new runway and air traffic control tower was built. In the decades leading up to now the airport has become increasingly busier and has more and more investment put into it. Now it is an international airport flying to over 70 destinations. The airport's road links make it easy to get to the city and also other parts of the north of England and Scotland.
