Ahead of its reopening the airport underwent a period of expansion and redevelopment, with support from Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership’s investment of £4.95 million. Improvements include a new terminal and runway.
What’s more, in recognition of the airport’s dedication to providing an accessible and attractive hub for general aviation customers, Carlisle Lake District was awarded the Best General Aviation Airport Award by the Airport Operators Association (AOA) in October 2018.
Aside from its strategic location it offers general aviation customers a professional executive handling service. Facilities include a VIP lounge, flight planning and weather reports, hangar space, apron transfers, helicopter charters and concierge services.
