[C]arlisle Lake District Airport has announced that it is cutting fuel and landing fees for general aviation (GA) customers.

The move is designed to recognise the support of the GA community during the construction of the new runway and terminal at Carlisle Lake District Airport.

  • Landing fees will be discounted at 20% for August and reviewed for September
  • Avgas fuel will be £1.70 per litre (including VAT), commencing on Friday 10 August until Sunday 30 September
  • Jet fuel prices will remain unchanged at market rates
  • Stobart Café, located in the North Apron, will also offer a free tea or coffee with every purchase above £5

The latest announcement follows the airport’s reopening to light aircraft on Tuesday 7 August.

Kate Willard, Head of Corporate Projects at Stobart Group, said: “These amazing offers show Carlisle Lake District Airport is well and truly open to the GA community, who have been incredibly supportive over the last few months. Our lower landing and fuel fees mean this gateway to the Lake District and the south of Scotland is even more accessible to light aircraft.”
