CARLISLE travellers can now catch the plane from the airport as the first passenger flight launches for the first time in 25 years to the Lake District with Loganair this summer.
Lake District holidaymakers can now get to the destination much easier as passenger flights launch today.
Travelling with Loganair, the airline will run eight flights a day in the week, and 12 flights a day during the weekend.
The flights will travel between Carlisle Airport and Southend Airport, Belfast City Airport and Dublin.
It is the first time in 25 years that flights will be travelling from the airport for passengers.
The first flight will commence on June 4, in time for the summer holidays.
Loganair managing director Jonathan Hinkles commented: “We’re delighted to become the first operator at the new Carlisle Lake District airport, and will be opening up Loganair’s services to a whole new range of customers.
“With frequent services on each of the three routes, we have every confidence that these new flights will transform access to and from the Lake District for many thousands of customers each year.”
