I should hope so - that's the date quoted for the start of PAX services!

Well the airline is clearly Stobart Air, now should they opt to sub-contract that work to another carrier it won't be that carrier's reputation on any line, they are merely acting as a sub-contractor to Stobart Air

Only Stobarts can answer your question. Our crystal balls rarely tell the facts.

Stobart Rail & Civils are moving their H/O to a CAX site in June to coincide with the re-opening of the airport to commercial traffic with another site relocating there later in the year.
Will these moves be into areas within the new "terminal" building currently under construction?.

Yes - the terminal will be located in part of the new office building.

Southside bobby - if you do a rudimentary search of the local planning authority’s applications page, you’ll find detailed plans. It is basically 75% office and 25% passenger terminal. Very low cost steel frame and steel cladding, not designed to win any architectural prizes or conserve energy.

Thanks for the info.

So was the near £5m local grant provided to Stobart for the terminal structure & airfield enhancement also to provide a brand new H/O?.. as I failed to read that in the CAX press releases.

Head of Corporate Projects at Stobart Group on 23.1.18 stated "the work to lay a new runway & construct the terminal would not have been possible were it not for a near £5m invest from Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership".

Would I interpret correctly reading between the lines with info from posters & the Stobart statement that the cost of a brand new H/O is provided from within the grant monies then?.

Carlisle Airport Enhancements
Delivery of infrastructure necessary to facilitate the development of scheduled air services. The airport has suffered from a lack of investment which has meant missed opportunities to increase tourism and inward investment. The enhancements will include improvements to the airport’s runway including reprofiling the runway surface, alterations to runway drainage, the installation of new aerodrome ground lighting and resurfacing works to taxiways. Passenger terminal facilities and car parking facilities would also be improved. These improvements would open Cumbria up to more international visitors, a key
priority for maximising the potential of Cumbria’s tourism sector.

I don't know for certain, but would expect this to be match funding, and any funding for the building to be restricted to the terminal element - given that the office element is just moving people down the road (so displacement, not growth).

Thanks for the research & as stated above is what one could reasonably expect & in the case would appear perfectly equitable...

Certainty would be welcome however.
