Carlisle Lake District Airport has announced a series of promotions within its firefighting team today. The airport has promoted two firefighters to Acting Crew Managers and one Acting Crew Manager to Crew Manager.
The series of promotions comes ahead of Thursday 4 July, when Carlisle Lake District Airport will launch commercial flights for the first time in more than 25 years.
The 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 www.loganair.co.uk. Fares to Belfast City start from £39.99 and to Dublin and London Southend from £44.99.
Luke Russell, the newly promoted Crew Manager, said: “The promotion was a fantastic opportunity to progress through ranks. I’ve been an Acting Crew Manager from the last 12 months and have trained at London Southend Airport, Durham Tees Valley Airport and Glasgow Airport. I am really looking forward to the launch of commercial flights at Carlisle Lake District Airport on 4 July.”
Kate Willard, Director of Partnership Development for Stobart Group, said: “We are delighted to announce these promotions ahead of our 4 July launch. This demonstrates the hard work that both our firefighting and other teams have been carrying out.”
