I am typesetting tables in longtable environment, each one has different amount of rows (sometimes exceeding one page, sometimes not) and the \newpage after each table. I want to add empty rows at the end of each table, so they would fill the empty space after \newpage command.

Is it possible to do this somehow?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

Your question is ambiguous: Are you trying to have tabulars inside a large longtable? However, what is the sense of having whitespace after a \newpage ? – Keks Dose Sep 20 '11 at 12:37
I think the question means to fill the page, i.e. have empty lines before the page break, not after it. – Paŭlo Ebermann Oct 1 '11 at 20:54
It is always best to compose a [MWE] (meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228/…) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it. This will also help to remove some ambiguity in the question. – Peter Grill Oct 2 '11 at 23:36

Try using the \clearpage command instead of \newpage. If I understand your question, the \newpage isn't properly taking you to the top of a new page as you expect. \clearpage should do the trick.
