HOLIDAYMAKERS will face extra travel hassle as Metro suspends trains to Newcastle International Airport over the weekend.

There will be no trains between South Gosforth and Airport stations in either direction until 10 August to allow for modernisation work.

The 900 bus replacement service will be running to keep passengers connected to the airport.

Some passengers have taken to social media to bemoan the decision to carry out work on the Airport section of the line during the summer holiday season.
