And announced this week that CBG (Cambridge) has once again lost its scheduled flights.

BLK going will be a shame though for the North West as it will leave a large gap in the aviation service between LPL and MAN to the south, Leeds / Brad to the East and Carlisle / Glasgow to the North.
Potential Closure of Blackpool Airport – Transfer of Jet2.com & Jet2holidays Flights to Manchester Airport
There has been considerable uncertainty in recent weeks, over the future of Blackpool Airport and this has already led to the withdrawal of key 3rd party facilities, without notice, that have seriously impacted on the operation of our aircraft from and to Blackpool Airport.
BLACKPOOL AIRPORT ANNOUNCEMENT
We regret to announce that no agreement has been reached to secure the future of operations at Blackpool Airport. The airport operation has been making a loss for a number of years and unfortunately there is no option for the company other than to close.
This is a very sad day for the airport which has a proud aviation history and a loyal, appreciative customer following. We would like to thank all our dedicated staff who have delivered exceptional service to passengers for many years.
The airport will remain open to the public until 15 October 2014 and we will endeavour to maintain operations as normal until this date, after which time commercial flights will cease.

Was the business actually 'for sale' and if so do we know for how much?
|Quoting vfw614 (Reply 22):|
My understanding is that there are efforts to keep the airport operational for the off-shore, GA and Citywing's 19seater business by "downgrading" it (the reason why Citywing is only suspending ops for 4 weeks). Obviously fire cover be reduced, the terminal closed down - but other than that, what would such a downgrade involve to make it commercially feasible?
