The airline will operate its five times weekly service with a 33-seater Saab 340B aircraft from July 4. Tickets are now on sale for booking, the airport said.
‘The Lake District is a stunningly beautiful area in the UK and we are delighted to add it as a new destination to our route network,’ said Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison. ‘I have no doubt that this new route will be popular in both directions for Irish and British customers. We will work closely with Loganair to promote its new service.’
Loganair Commercial Director Kay Ryan, added, ‘There is huge demand for passengers in Ireland to visit Carlisle, which is home to major engineering, manufacturing and logistics industries and serves as a gateway to the Lake District, a UNESCO World Heritage site. We also anticipate strong interest from passengers in Carlisle and the Scottish Borderlands area who are eager to spend time in Ireland.’
