New non-stop flights from India will attract more visitors to Lake District

The first Jet Airways service linking the Indian sub-continent with Northern England will arrive in Manchester on Monday, November 5.

It flies five times a week and it is hoped the new connection will both support trade and encourage more leisure visitors from the world’s fastest growing economy.

Gill Haigh, Cumbria Tourism’s managing director is attending a special VIP event at Manchester Airport to mark the inaugural flight.

She said she believed the Lake District and Cumbria will have a huge appeal to potential new visitors heading to Northern England from one of India’s major cities.
She added: “Research carried out by our colleagues at VisitBritain has shown that Indian visitors are attracted to culture, heritage and the natural beauty of the landscape – qualities which Cumbria has in abundance.
