New Loganair flight to connect Northern Ireland and Lake District for first time
The service will begin in June
Scottish airline Loganair has announced a new service connecting George Best Belfast City Airport with Carlisle Lake District Airport.
The service will directly connect Northern Ireland with the Lake District area in the North of England for the first time.
The route will go on sale from Monday March 12, with services commencing on June 4 and flying from Belfast six times weekly.
Katy Best, commercial director at Belfast City Airport, said there was clear demand for the route.
“I am delighted to welcome both a new airline and a new route to Northern Ireland directly connecting the region to the Cumbria and Lake District areas for the first time," she said.
“Local demand for connectivity to the northern English county is evident amongst both business and leisure passengers and the six times weekly Loganair service will accommodate affordable and convenient access.
“The airline will be operating this route as a partner of Stobart Group making the arrival of strategic importance to Belfast City Airport where developing our route network remains a primary aim.
“The first flight from Carlisle Lake District Airport will arrive in Belfast on June 4 with the following week seeing the launch of Flybe’s four times weekly service to Doncaster Sheffield Airport from Belfast City.”
