New flights from Southend to the Lake District

Fly from Essex to the Lake District Southend Airport

The Lake District is an undeniably lovely place to visit, drawing millions of visitors a year with its unspoilt countryside of mountains, hills and lakes alongside its famous literary connections including William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. But faced with a minimum five and a half hour drive it's likely that many of us in the South East are more likely to jump on a flight to Europe than head up to the UK's most popular national park.

All that is set to change as a new Loganair route from London Southend Airport to Carlisle Lake District Airport launches on 4 June. Daily flights will take 90 minutes, from £44.99 one-way.
