Loganair partners Carlisle

In a significant development for the UK domestic network, Carlisle Lake District Airport (CLDA) last week unveiled Loganair as an airline partner with flights to southeast England, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland from 4 June.

Loganair will operate eight flights every weekday and a total of 12 at weekends connecting Cumbria and the Lake District, which receives 45m visitors a year, to Southend, Belfast City and Dublin Airports.

The launch will mark the first time since 1993 CLDA has hosted commercial and business passenger flights.

Kate Willard, head of corporate projects at airport owner Stobart Group, said: “There is huge demand from London, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland for Carlisle, which is home to major businesses a gateway to some top attractions."

Loganair managing director Jonathan Hinkles added: “Opening up Loganair’s services to a whole new range of customers and with frequent services on these three routes, these flights will transform access to and from the Carlisle region.”

Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) board member Nigel Wilkinson praised the new routes as a boost for the economy. The group is contributing £4.95m to help the airport to improve its runway and terminal.
