Southend Airport work continues

Whilst a date for the opening of Southend Airport’s recently completed railway
station still waits, in other areas work is progressing quickly as the new owner, Stobart Group, continues with its investment.

Ground works have now been completed on the new passenger building with much of the steelwork erected.  The new terminal – which is one of several construction projects required to make Southend a fully-functioning regional airport by 2012 – is on target to be operational by October 2011.  It is just a two-minute walk via a covered walkway from the new airport railway station.  No date has yet been given for the first train to officially stop but it is thought it will coincide with the introduction of Aer Arran flights on 27 March.

Work on a runway extension and airport hotel is due to start later this year.  The airport is predicting passenger growth to 2m passengers per year by 2020. www.aerarann.com
