CARLISLE Airport is set to be acquired by an Isle of Man-based company.
Agreements have been signed for Carlisle Lake District Airport to change hands to Ettyl Limited from Esken Limited, which has had ownership of the site since 2009.
The sale will see Ettyl acquire Irish regional airline Stobart Air as well.
Commenting, Jason Scales, CEO of Ettyl Limited said: “We are delighted to have signed agreements for these acquisitions.
“In the immediate term it will be very much business as usual in respect of both Stobart Air and Carlisle Lake District Airport’s operations and our deal ensures that the great teams within those businesses are retained.
“We will be making further announcements over the coming weeks and months regarding our plans.”
