A stunning new bar and restaurant has opened overlooking a North East airport runway - with images of the opening of the venue showing incredible views.

The bar, which is based at Newcastle International Airport, is named Aster & Thyme and boasts food, drinks, and extensive views of flights taking off and landing.

Replacing the Cabin Bar, the space offers passengers a completely new experience with spectacular wall-to-wall views of the airfield.

The new outlet features a botanical-themed interior design.
