Blackpool Airport to be sold

Future of IoM-UK hub uncertain

Blackpool Airport is up for sale again - once again throwing its long-term viability into question.

The airport, which currently serves the Isle of Man on a route operated by CityWing, was closed in late 2014 after making losses for several years.

It was then re-opened several months later.

North West Air Ambulance, which provides critical care transfers for Island patients, is also based at the airport.

Owners Balfour Beatty say they've 'begun discussions' with a number of stakeholders.
