Southend cheers on easyJet

Four million passengers and 32,000 flights after it started, easyJet on Tuesday celebrated its fifth anniversary at Southend Airport. The airline now flies to 15 destinations across Europe; Amsterdam, Alicante, Faro and Malaga are the most popular. 

To mark the anniversary, two local children also celebrating fifth birthdays this year were invited to dress up as easyJet pilots and have a tour of an easyJet aircraft and cockpit. 

Darcy Page and Cooper Page Martin are cousins from Rochford and grandchildren of easyJet crew member Angela Page. Also joining the celebrations was Rochford and Southend East MP James Duddridge.

EasyJet UK commercial manager Neil Slaven said: “We’re fully committed to London Southend Airport and have demonstrated this by investing heavily in new destinations. We’re keen to continue adding more varied routes to our schedule.”

Glyn Jones, CEO of Stobart Aviation, which owns the airport, added: “With superb access, including our own station with trains to and from London in 45min and unique customer service, it's no surprise more and more people are choosing Southend. 

“We aim to make this the capital’s next big airport, in line with easyJet’s plans, so we all look forward to the next successful five years.”
