Carlisle Airport reopens for general aviation flights

Carlisle Lake District Airport in the UK has reopened for general aviation flights and pilots are now permitted to land on its runway.

Stobart Group, whom own and operate the airport, noted that it is very happy general aviation activity has resumed at the airport.

The operator thanked the general aviation community for its understanding during the period of time they were unable to land.

The airport is to welcome commercial flights in spring 2019 as Loganair will begin ferrying passengers from the airport.

Many businesses were reported to have been unhappy with the delay in reopening the airfield, with Border Air Training pulling out of the airport completely due to the delay.
