If you are thinking of taking an international flight from Blackpool's airport, our delightful hotel, The Carn Brae, is located a convenient 5 minute drive from Blackpool International Airport. Formerly known as Squire's Gate Airport, several European holiday flights are available here for tremendous value prices. Instead of travelling to Manchester or Stansted, or as far as Heathrow, consider how easy and convenient it is to use Blackpool Airport if you live in the North West. Blackpool’s Airport offers Value for Money It’s only fit and proper Blackpool has its own airport as Blackpool’s aviation roots stretch back to 1909 and the first Blackpool Air Show. Although this airport is privately owned, it is reasonably run. You have to pay £10 tax to go through the airport, however, if you return from your holiday in two weeks, parking is free. Keep in mind the average punter at Heathrow, Gatwick, and Stansted pays over £65 for a week of parking, and £50 is the lowest parking price for a week at Manchester Airport. International Destinations from Blackpool Destinations include Alicante, Murcia, Faro, Tenerife, and Palma de Majorca. Winter sun is at your fingertips with fast, non-stop travel available for a lot less than the folks pay down south. You can also fly to Dublin, Ireland via Aer Arann airlines, where you can catch connecting flights to New York, Europe, Boston, Chicago and Orlando via Aer Lingus. As of summer 2014, three new Jet2 airline destinations have been added to the roster at Blackpool International Airport. These are Dalaman in Turkey, and Ibiza and Lanzarote in Spain. From May 2015, Reus in eastern Spain is offered. Citywing Airlines will take you to Belfast-City and the Isle of Man.
