Carlisle Lake District Airport takes delivery of new fire engine

Carlisle Lake District Airport has unveiled its latest major delivery ahead of launching commercial flights for the first time in more than 25 years on Thursday 4 July.

The airport welcomed its second fire engine, which will become the principal appliance for the airport’s fire-fighting crew. The engine, a Simon Gloster Saro 4×4 Protector, holds a staggering 4,500 litres of water and 500 litres of foam.

Kate Willard, Director of Partnership Development for Stobart Group, said: “The delivery of our second fire engine is just another exciting milestone ahead of our historic 4 July launch. It comes just days after we promoted some of our hard-working fire-fighting team.”

Carlisle Lake District Airport has teamed-up with Lognair, Scotland’s regional airline, to offer routes to and from London Southend Airport, Belfast City Airport and Dublin Airport, opening Cumbria and the Lake District region to the South East of England, Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland.

The routes are on sale and tickets are available via Fares to Belfast City start from £39.99 and to Dublin and London Southend from £44.99.
