Newcastle International airport-based Samson Executive Jet Centre has completed a comprehensive refurbishment project.

Since 2022, the North East UK's largest executive jet facility has seen a significant increase in passengers opting to use its professional, personal and efficient aviation services. Due to this increased passenger demand, the private terminal has invested in an extended departure lounge area that provides a more premium experience.

The main executive departure lounge has been redesigned and extended to include more comfortable seating areas, complimented by flat screen televisions, a wide selection of magazines and free-of-charge refreshments.

General manager Paula Ives says: "We pride ourselves in providing a professional, personal and efficient service, allowing our passengers to choose how, when and where they would like to travel. For arriving passengers, we are often their very first impression of the region, and for departing passengers we work hard to ensure we provide a first-class area that they can relax in before boarding their aircraft. We are delighted to be able to share the results of the refurbishment project with our customers."

Samson is also aligning with the airport's ambition to become Net Zero Carbon by 2035, and has recently invested in a fleet of electric vehicles including an electric minibus and ground handling equipment.
