After months of delay, the airport of Carlisle in the region of Cumbria is set to open July 4 2019 for commercial flights. The Scottish Airline Loganair is going to operate the airports’ first flights to London Southend, Belfast and Dublin.
Opening Carlisle Airport was delayed for over a year
For the first time in 25 years, commercial air traffic is back at Carlisle Airport, located in the Northwest of England. The airport, owned by the Stobart Group, was set to open in June of last year, but was delayed as the airport had trouble recruiting air traffic controllers. A problem now solved as the airport is set to reopen in July.
Carlisle Airport flights
The airport of Carlisle last welcomed passengers in 1993. In the meantime, the airport served a base for private aircraft, flying schools and military purposes. Logan Air will now reopen flight routes to Dublin, London Southend and Belfast five times a week.
