Julie Birkett, 48, from Huddersfield, no longer works for the airline after she was detained on suspicion of being under the influence on Saturday.
Cops were waiting at the airport after the captain alerted air traffic control as the plane from Alicante was about to land in the early hours of the morning.
Officers then arrested Birkett as they escorted her off the jet.
Police have confirmed she has since been charged with performing an aviation function whilst unfit through drink.
She is due to appear before magistrates in North Tyneside on September 4.
The two-and-a-half-hour flight had set off from Alicante–Elche Airport in Spain just before 11.40pm local time and arrived into Newcastle Airport at around 1.10am.
A Northumbria Police spokeswoman said: “Police were contacted by Air Traffic Control at Newcastle Airport who reported a cabin crew member on an incoming flight was believed to have been under the influence of alcohol.”
A spokesman for easyJet said: “We can confirm that flight EZY6420 from Alicante to Newcastle was met by police at the request of the captain.
“A crew member was arrested, subsequently charged and no longer works for easyJet.
“As this is a police matter we cannot comment on an ongoing investigation.
“easyJet has a zero tolerance policy on drugs and alcohol and our rules and regulations are very clear. The safety of our passengers and crew is our highest priority.”
