Flights now connect Carlisle and the Lake District, which attracts 45 million visitors per year, with the South East of England (London Southend Airport), Northern Ireland (Belfast City Airport) and the Republic of Ireland (Dublin Airport) from Thursday July 4 thanks to Carlisle Lake District Airport’s partnership with Loganair, Scotland’s Airline.
Carlisle Lake District Airport is the gateway to the Lake District National Park, the Pennines, South West Scotland and Border regions, located just six miles east of Carlisle City and the M6 (J43 or J44).
From Southend, Loganair has also commenced flights to Aberdeen and Glasgow in Scotland generally using Embraer 145s and the occasional SAAB 2000 and Embraer 135s.
