Newport is just a 25 mile drive via the M4 motorway from Cardiff Airport. So for those planning to travel on by car after their flight, Newport is a comfortable 45 minute drive from the airport.

What’s more there are plenty of public transport options for those looking for a break from the roads.

Facilities and Services at Cardiff Airport

Cardiff Airport is Wales’s only main airport and offers plenty of inbound and outbound flights to a wide variety of destinations every day. The airport offers a range of food and drink options, including a coffee shop, bar and cafeteria. There are also two ATM machines at the airport.

As well as a couple of well stocked land-side shops with a wide selection of newspapers, sweets, books, snacks and tobacco, it probably comes as no surprise to discover that there is a Tax and Duty Free shop offering substantial savings on drink, fragrance, clothing and accessories to those taking a flight.

Bristol Airport - an Alternative to Cardiff Airport

Ever so slightly further away than Cardiff, Bristol Airport is on the UK side of the Severn River and just 35 miles from Newport.

Bristol offers similar road and rail travel options to Newport, which would take about the same amount of time.

When to Book a Flight to Newport

Situated as it is at the heart of some of the most beautiful countryside the British Isles have to offer there is never a bad time to visit Newport.

The Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley both are right on the doorstep, whilst the Brecon Beacons are just a short drive away.

Newport’s proud heritage can be enjoyed at any time of year with sights such as the Newport Transporter Bridge, Newport Castle, Newport Cathedral and Tredegar House.

Nevertheless if you were to time your visit for the first weekend in July, you would also be able to enjoy the Caerleon Arts Festival, which offers a scintillating array of theatre, music and storytelling for all ages.
