Carlisle Airport for scheduled flights?

CARLISLE AIRPORT, once RAF Crosby-on-Eden, could become a fully licensed scheduled service operation after the local city council gave planning permission for the owner, Stobart Group Ltd, to develop the facility.  Stobart Air, part of the Group and also the owner of Southend Airport, plans to resurface the 1800m single runway and build a new passenger terminal.  These developments are expected to be completed during next year and also include a 350,00sq ft warehouse and the relocation of a Stobart lorry park.  Stobart Air is known to be evaluating the possibility of starting its own airline whilst in discussions with possible resident carriers. www.carlisleairport.co.uk
