Carlisle Airport: Legal and planning obstacles still remain
Last updated at 12:42, Saturday, 04 August 2012
Plans to redevelop Carlisle Airport have been cleared for take-off, raising hopes of scheduled flights to London and Dublin by this time next year.
Have your say
scheduled fights will not work the airlines will pull out after 1 year. i fly from blackpool and its 1hour away it a great airport but they have flights pull out, it hard when u got good airports round us like manchester ect, and blackpool had ryanair flying to london it left pulled the flight so no chance carlisle,
John I live NEAR an airfield, soon to be an industrial estate an airport would be good, I could fly to the States to see my family. I have read the reports and they don't stack up to be an airport. However if the airport did happen, I am not selfish enough to want planes to fly over the school, this could be averted if the runway was changed
CM in answer to your question regaring the differing costs between Southend and Carlisle, perhaps you have misunderstood what is going to be built under the current planning application. i.e. a distribution centre and a new runway. The costs do not include a ATC Tower, Terminal Building, Runway Extension or a hotel, hence the difference between Â£100 milliion at Southend and Â£26 million at Carlisle.
