Mark Menzies MP welcomes Citywing return

FYLDE MP Mark Menzies today welcomed the news that commercial flights had returned to Blackpool Airport.

The Member of Parliament, in whose constituency the airfield sits, said: “Since the airport first closed last year I have been working hard to make sure everything was in place for commercial aviation to return to Blackpool.

“I have lobbied Ministers for Government support for the site and successfully campaigned for it to be allocated Enterprise Zone status.

“That helped secure the site’s financial future, which was imperative if regular scheduled flights were to begin again.

“These Citywing flights have proved extremely popular in the past and I hope this will be another step towards returning the Fylde’s proud reputation for aviation.” ​
