You have to leave the UK to go anywhere unless you want to go to ABZ
What a strange statement, is ABZ not in UK, can one not travel literally anywhere from LHR, is LHR not in UK either?

HS3 a distant dream , which is NOT coming to Carlisle it fizzles out at Crewe. We are talking the here and now.
We're not allowed to discuss trains here but just check out website traveline for, here and now, train times, we'd probably only need HS3 to compete with something supersonic!

What became of the RGF route(s) from Carlisle?

Before this "easyJet to Carlisle" malarkey spreads any further, have a look at the new terminal plans approved last month and try and imagine 150 pax in there...

Anyone got the dates for the Carlisle closure for the runway realignment??

See the Fire Cover has been permanently reduced is that because of the closure?

They're not realigning the runway, they're sticking with the existing alignment and length but "raising and re-profiling" it. The realigned runway proposal dates back to 2007 but was withdrawn the following year when it got called in by central government.

Imminent and definitely opening next summer, according to a Stobart executive quoted in the local newspaper. The meeting was about the bonkers scheme to extend the Borders line to Carlisle.

Stobart Group`s regional distribution centre at Carlisle Airport has been sold for 23.61m.
Is this continuing the sale of the family silver perhaps?.

Maybe they will use the money from the sale to invest in the airport.
Who knows

The new owners only bought the distribution centre , not the airport.

Amazing though when you consider the “Kerfuffle” to obtain the land against a lot of local opposition,to sell the centre off so quickly? No doubt we will hear a statement re the airport soon.

Stobart sold the distribution centre in February 2016 and is leasing it under a 20 year agreement. Value has increased by nearly 7m in past 18 months.
