Southend gains scheduled services

Aer Arann is to introduce twice daily flights (with limited weekend services) from Southend Airport to both Waterford and Galway from 27 March 2011.  These are the first full scheduled routes to be announced since the airport was purchased by the Stobart Group two years ago.  Stobart also has an interest in Aer Arann.  Flight time, by ATR72 turboprops, to Waterford is around 1hr 30mins and Galway 20mins longer.

Airport Managing Director, Alastair Welch, said: “2011 is a very big year for London Southend, with a new airport railway station now complete and gearing up to be fully operational in the coming weeks, a new control tower also now ready, construction of a new passenger terminal underway and work on the runway extension and new airport hotel due to start later this year.  This is the year London Southend Airport goes on the international air travel map as a fast, friendly and hassle-free new gateway to London.  With the new railway station soon to be fully operational, we will be about 50 minutes by train from Liverpool Street, right in the heart of the City of London.” www.southendairport.com
