Sydney to Newcastle Flights and Newcastle to Sydney Flights

I get asked this question a lot in my role as a chauffeur to Sydney Airport from Newcastle, on a daily basis is it easy to catch flights to Newcastle?

So here’s a little bit of information to break down and find the best way to get to Newcastle from Sydney.

There are two airlines that fly to Newcastle daily:

Pelican Air

Pelican Air is a local Newcastle based airline that works in and out of Newcastle Airport. Pelican Airlines flies to Sydney at 6:40 a.m. and 4:40 p.m. with a return flight from Sydney to Newcastle at 10:05 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Prices start at $109 per person with a 20-kg weight limit on your luggage, to a full flexi fare at $349 with a 23-kg luggage limit and an extra $5 per kg charge on your heavy bags. You also have a $33 administration fee.

This flight is done on a very small plane so if small planes are not what you’re looking for the Pelican is not for you.

Rex Airlines

Rex Airlines is a regional based airline that works out of Sydney Airport. It also runs Sydney to Newcastle flights and Newcastle to Sydney flights. Rex flies three times a day with flights to Newcastle and return flights back to Sydney.

Sydney to Newcastle flights are 9:10 a.m., 2:05 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Newcastle to Sydney flights at 7:25 a.m. 12:05 a.m. and 5p.m.p.m.

Prices are approximately around $110 per person for the midday flight and the early morning and late-night flights are approximately around $149 per person. Rex also offers a 23kg weight limit on your luggage and also has a credit card and booking fees that are charged at the time of booking.

Rex also flies smaller planes so if you’re uncomfortable on a smaller plane Rex is not ideal for you.

So now you’re thinking what other options are there to get to Newcastle?

Something that you may not have thought of because you think that the price would be too expensive is a chauffeur driven transfer. Newcastle Connections offers this services from 1 to 4 people from Sydney Airport to any address in Newcastle at a cost of $300 for the vehicle. We also run from Newcastle to Sydney.
