Carlisle provides the ideal location for your business

Air Transport

Carlisle Airport is situated approximately 5 miles to the east and can provide private charter flights internally or internationally. Below is a statement from the Airport Director.

“Currently we regularly accept flights to/from the USA that are referred to as 'private flights' in reasonably large private jets (like a Gulfstream 4 or 5) fly to/from Carlisle from as far afield as the west coast of the USA. We also have private flights that are internal UK or European based, ranging in size from small executive twin turbo props up to large private jets. These find Carlisle readily accessible and are supported by relevant services of Fire Cover, fuel, etc.

Our operating hours are 09:00-18:00 daily although we can extend these by prior arrangement.

We can arrange aircraft hire within the UK for journeys to/from major airports such as Heathrow, Manchester etc to provide connecting private airplanes or helicopter transfers to Carlisle.

The link to Dublin and London Southend will develop once the runway has been resurfaced (2013) and this would provide a Dublin-USA service with the added benefit of US Immigration clearance at Dublin. The link from Southend airport to central London (Liverpool Street) is very quick and easy - it is less than 100m from the airport terminal to the railway platform and there are around 6-8 trains per hour direct to Liverpool Street (transit time c.45-50 mins). This would give a Carlisle Airport - Liverpool St transit time of around 2 - 2.25 hours in total.”
