New flights make the Lake District more accessible than ever
Tickets are now on sale for Carlisle’s first commercial flights in 25 years. Loganair will be operating flights between the Lake District and London Southend, Belfast City and Dublin from 4th June 2018.
With eight flights on week days and a total of 12 flights at the weekends, these will be the airport's first commercial passenger flights since 1993.
Kate Willard, head of corporate projects at the airport's parent company Stobart Group, said:
"There is huge demand from London, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to visit Carlisle, which is home to major businesses and serves as a gateway to the Lake District, two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and south Scotland."
The airport is also proposing that the flights to Dublin will provide an alternative to US-bound travellers, who can clear US immigration checks in Ireland.
Loganair MD Jonathan Hinkles said:
"With frequent services on each of the three routes, we have every confidence that these new flights will transform access to and from the Lake District for many thousands of customers each year."
The new flights are great news for those wishing to explore the UK and Ireland on a tight schedule. These new routes will allow inbound tourists to travel from London to the ever-popular Lake District and onwards to Belfast or Dublin, without the need for lengthy car or train journeys.
