Carlisle Lake District Airport, (IATA: CAX) has announced that all scheduled flights to London Southend (SEN) and Belfast City (BHD) will be suspended from March 27 until further notice, as well as those already suspended last week to Dublin, as a direct result of the coronavirus impact.

The services were operated by Loganair, which said its customers will be informed by email and fares will be refunded automatically.

The airline has updated its website with all relevant information and those affected are advised to visit www.loganair.co.uk

Simon Williamson, managing director of Carlisle Lake District Airport, said: “The unprecedented situation that we are all facing is having a major impact, with government advising against all unnecessary travel.
