Woolsington Airport was opened in 1935.

During World War II the main airport in the region was located at Cramlington but after the war it was decided to develop Woolsington Airport. In the 1950s, ex-RAF fighter pilot Jim Denyer was appointed Airport Manager and destinations included Jersey and the isle of Wight.

During the 1960s there was a major increase in traffic due to foreign holidays becoming cheap and popular with destinations such as Spain. A new runway was built with an apron, and air traffic control tower.

In the 1970s it became a regional international airport and later rebranded as Newcastle Airport. The 1980s saw further investment in check-in, catering, and duty-free shops. In 1991, the Airport Metro station was opened which connected the airport with Newcastle and later with Sunderland using the Tyne and Wear Metro system. In 2000, a new extension was built.

Copenhagen Airports aquired a 49% stake in the airport in 2001. In 2004 the Departure Terminal was extended and refurbished which included new shops, cafes, and seating. In 2007 a new Air Traffic Control Tower was completed and situated on the north side of the airfield.

The south-side of the airport is used for freight, mail, and corporate flights. It is planned to expand the south-side area with maintenance facilities, new hangar, and apron areas. The Newcastle Aviation Academy is also located in this area. The main aim of the Academy, which is an off-site university campus, is to supply the aircraft industry with more trained engineers.

In August 2004 an extended and refurbished Departure Terminal was opened. The refurbishment comprised a 3,000 square metre extension which included new shops, and cafes etc. On 27 October 2012 Copenhagen Airport sold the stake in the airport to AMP Capital, which is an Australian-based Investment Management Company.
