A new 24/7 multi-faith prayer room has opened at Newcastle International Airport.

Located near security, the room offers a dedicated space for prayer, meditation and quiet reflection for both passengers and staff.

Its facilities include comfortable seating, prayer mats, and a range of religious texts.

Nick Jones, Chief Executive Officer at Newcastle International Airport, said: “We are delighted to open our brand-new multi-faith prayer room and quiet space.
“We welcome and value our employees’ and passengers’ differences, and the newly refurbished space reflects our dedication to create an inclusive culture for all.'

The official opening of the Chapel was marked by senior airport management, airport chaplains, and faith leaders from across the North East.

Fiona Usher, Chaplain Team Leader at the airport, said: “We believe this newly refurbished space will provide passengers and employees with a place to find peace, strength and recharge, and we hope to see many more faces embracing this sanctuary during their journey or working day.”
