Carlisle Airport plans poised for take off

A £25 million redevelopment of Carlisle Airport has come a step closer after city councillors reaffirmed their decision to grant planning permission.

Have your say

Who says you need an ILS to land safely in fog? Most pilots are more than cabale of doing a LOC of NDB approach and landing safely. Might be a few delays due to weather for early morning flights, no more than anywhere else.

Well David - Stansted was without most of what it now has - also Luton & Coventry etc etc - its called progress - things change & get better. Carlisle can also impprove, its a long way to go of course overcoming negativity - the changes will happen. Fog happens elswhere in the world too.

Sorry to disposses Mac of his fantasy. The runway was never 4 miles long in WW2 (!!!)A mile is all we've got and not long enough for ANY jetliner. Prop aircraft only. A 737 could only operate partially full and is banned by Carlisle CC in the planning application. Aircraft types are stipulated. So, no Ryanair or Easyjet. Also no Instrument Landing System, so in bad weather like fog no safe landings? Could be over 150 days per year - also no word of any radar cover. Go to Newcastle, much safer!

Hi Neig, that's great but I don't want to change planes when going to Majorca. I want a non stop flight please.

I agree with Barry, there will be good links with Southend for Easyjet holiday flights which could turn out cheaper if Carlisle keeps the free parking.

David - at least there would be a choice, you could be in Newquay as quick as Blackpool - and Blackpool already has an airport ! so its easy to leave it behind thankfully.!!

Mac, I hope Carlisle never turns into Newquay. Newquay is even worse then Blackpool.

Will a new tattoo studio in Carlisle persuade you to get a tattoo?

Yes - I might be tempted

No - I don't like tattoos

I would rather go to a more established studio
