At present, said Mr Scales, the focus would be on restarting passenger flights, building business on the back of the coming summer tourism trade. He said: “We’re actively engaged with a number of regional airlines with a view to offering new routes; in particular to see if we can get routes ready for the upcoming summer.”

Aye, but I bet the flights would still be busier than MME-LHR

Had flights been available from the London area, I would have booked 4 return seats in July.

Possibly could be 29 to 34 seats, from UK or Denmark if it happens...

I think this is encouraging and shows real vision. I think there will be renewed interest in UK domestic breaks when we have Covid-19 under control. I wouldn't be surprised if this is part of the reasoning behind EZY and others putting on the MAN-NQY route. While I enjoy my foreign trips as much as anyone else I think if the UK can continue to improve it's accommodation offering then I can see The Lakes becoming a more attractive proposition for those seeking something a bit different. Good luck to them.

Are they not BA franchise. In s crazy ridiculous kinda covid way that would make sense to connect to CAX even via BHD or elsewhere on BA.

I think post covid I don't think anything is too left field

Staycations will be a big thing this year, but can we really see Carlisle Airport getting themselves sorted by this summer? Look how long it took to get up and running last time.. i just cant see it happening with a month or two's notice. Presumably they'll need to rehire personnel all over again.. hopefully they still have the old controllers on speed dial.

Talked about this before..the Lake District and type of customers it attracts doesn’t lend itself to air travel...

Walking boots,dog,tent,transport to and around the lakes etc. That will cost a bit in excess baggage!

Who has determined what any baggage allowance may be, I'm flying during July and on the cheapest of economy tickets I have a 30kg (hold), 7kg (cabin) plus a laptop bag allowance?
