Venture for newly-named airport
Lakes boost for Loganair in Stobart tie-up
Loganair will operate services from the newly-renamed Carlisle Lake District Airport (CLDA) to London Southend, both owned by Stobart, as well as flights from Carlisle to Dublin and Belfast City.
Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership has committed £4.95m to the development of CLDA, and the services will be the first commercial and business flights from Carlisle since 1993.
Loganair managing director Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re both delighted and honoured to become the first operator at the new Carlisle Lake District Airport, and this partnership with Stobart will open up Loganair’s services to a whole new range of customers.
“We have every confidence that these new flights will transform access to and from the Lake District for many thousands of customers each year, as well as serving areas like the South West of Scotland.”
