Carlisle Lake District Airport is conveniently located six miles east of Carlisle and the M6 (J43 or J44). It is ideally situated between the beautiful Lake District National Park, the north Pennines, the Scottish border county and Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site.
With two paved runways, Carlisle Lake District Airport provides facilities for a range of aircraft operations including executive handling, flight training and military exercises as well as the Solway Aviation Museum and a Café which are open to the public. The airport is licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority for public use.
Exciting opportunities lie ahead for Carlisle Lake District Airport. Historically, the region has been noteworthy for its lack of access by air, with the nearest airport being 60 miles away. There have long been calls for this to be addressed with business leaders keen to see progress. Stobart Group’s plans for Carlisle Lake District Airport will ensure this progress, opening an important northern link for scheduled services to and from the region.
A major new 310,000 sq ft distribution centre has been completed and development plans include an overhaul of the main runway to allow commercial passenger flights, within the UK and Europe.
