Who Flies to Southend Airport?
It was once a major UK airport before disappearing into oblivion. For years it was an airport no one ever thought of flying to but now that transport links have improved, it’s rising, phoenix-like, from the ashes. Expected to help over 2m passengers by the end of the decade, it’s becoming a viable alternative to other London airports, especially with the arrival of easyJet.

What is the Airport Like?
Since its purchase by Stobart Group, the airport has really taken off. It’s becoming a little crowded at times but an extension to the terminal building begun last November is making great progress. Currently with only limited shopping and eating facilities, the improved passenger terminal, due to open in 2014 will improve matters considerably.
- Passenger numbers have risen significantly since Easyjet began services in 2012 and the completion of the refurbishment. The airport owner expects 2 million passengers to pass through its door by 2020, current numbers of around 900k suggest that is some way off.
