How long will I need to wait for a new trip request if I’ve just dropped a rider off at the airport?
You may receive a new trip request quickly, if there’s a rider request nearby when you drop someone off at Newcastle airport. This means you may not have to wait in the virtual queue.
If you don’t receive a request within a few moments, this means there are no Rematch trips available and you should wait in the designated waiting area in the virtual queue if you would like to receive another airport trip request.
Please note: Waiting for a Rematch trip at the drop-off or pick-up area is not permitted. Please comply with all airport rules during airport trips.
