Close to Cardiff and Bristol Airport, and on the M4 corridor, getting in and out of Newport couldn’t be easier.
Getting around Newport
The busiest Welsh terminal, Cardiff Airport welcomes over 1.3 million passengers each year and is serviced by a dozen airlines flying to destinations across Europe. The airport, near the village of Rhoose, is 28 miles away from Newport and will take around 30 minutes by car along the A48.
Alternatively, you can catch a train to Cardiff central and then another regular service to the airport, which has its own train station. Similarly, you’ll need to catch two buses to reach the airport - the T9 from Newport and then the number 30, with the journey taking roughly two hours. If you don’t want to do all your travelling in one day, we offer a number of hotels near Cardiff Airport.
Bristol Airport is slightly further away. EasyJet, Ryanair, Thomas Cook, BMI Regional and several more airlines operate from Bristol, making it the ninth busiest airport in the UK. By car, it’ll take around an hour to travel the 40 miles or you can catch the Greyhound service, which goes directly from Bristol airport to Newport. We also have a number of hotels near Bristol Airport if you want to rest before travelling to Newport.
