The airport has been owned since May 2009 by the Stobart Group. It is on a lease agreement for 150 years which comes to an end in 2151. In the year 2014 and 2015, approximately £12 million freight distribution centre was built. It was on the south-eastern corner of the site leased to Eddie Stobart Group. 

The Stobart Group had plans for expansion by building a warehouse and distribution centre in 2017. It was on the land adjacent to the freight distribution centre. With the financial assistance from CLEP ( Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership, the plan took a different dimension. There were plans for passenger flights from mid of 2018 to London, Dublin and Belfast. Due to inevitable circumstances, the plans postponed several times. Finally, on 4th of July 2019, the new terminal was officially opened. The first flight after 1993 operated by Logan air. Carlisle must thank Eddie Stobart group for making this dream come true.

The pandemic – The adverse effect

Carlisle had its ups and downs for centuries. Yet, Carlisle has stood like a warrior facing all the troubles. Let it be a pandemic, recession, natural calamity. Carlisle was never on its knees and will never be. At present, the whole world is going through a mysterious disease, the COVID 19. The impact of this disease has shut down the airport business in Carlisle. Carlisle airport is closed since April 2020. It is another wait and watch for all of us to see the airport re-opening again.

Carlisle airport job cuts

The impact of COVID 19 has not only had a devastating effect on the businesses in Carlisle but also on the jobs of the people. Many people who were working at the airport in Carlisle lost their jobs due to COVID 19.  An extract from BBC news on the job cuts read as follows:

“It read that 50 roles may made redundant every week after it had announced passenger flights wouldn’t be resuming again.”

“The airport’s operator, Stobart Group, said Covid-19 had an adverse effect on the airport business.”

The airline operator – Loganair, who operated flights since July 2019 to London Southend, Belfast and Dublin stopped services in March 2020. This delivered a blow when it said it had no plans to restart them. When passenger services resumed last year after 1 / 4 of a century, the firm had hoped to move 500 people per week.

Stobart said it had been “confident the airport has a crucial regional economic role to play within the long term” but admitted its current situation was “challenging”.

The firm added it had been “reluctantly, but unavoidably, engaged in consultations with our team about reductions in staff numbers”.
