Southend easyJet return *

EasyJet will resume services from Southend to Palma de Mallorca and Malaga for next summer.

EasyJet first came to Southend in 2012 but closed the base as a consequence of the pandemic.

Flights to Palma are scheduled to take-off from 1 May four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Malaga will launch from 2 May with departures six times a week. Both routes will operate throughout the summer season.

Glyn Jones, CEO, Southend Airport said: "We are delighted at the prospect of a return of easyJet flights to London Southend Airport. The restart of easyJet operations would be a real asset to the airport, and an endorsement of London Southend Airport’s attractive offering. In a recent and comprehensive London Southend Airport survey of people living in London and the east of England, Spanish destinations topped the list of places people most want to fly to next year. The prospect of flights to these hugely popular destinations from our quick and easy airport will greatly benefit us, the airline and people living in London and the east of England.”

It’s a pity that easyJet are a not bit more ambitious. Southend is a great airport to use. At Liverpool Street Station Stansted has a stand. Why not Southend too? Tell people about the very easy to use airport.
