Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Aer Arann, is to open a new three times daily route between Southend and Dublin offering not only excellent access to Ireland’s capital but also transatlantic connectivity to the USA. Start date is 10 May with the route flown by ATR 42 and 72 aircraft. Flight time is around one hour 45 minutes.
With this new service, travellers will be able to take advantage of transatlantic connections through Dublin on Aer Lingus flights to New York, Boston, Chicago and Orlando. Passengers will also benefit from the unique US Customs and Immigrations pre-clearance facilities at Dublin Airport that will allow them to arrive in the US as domestic passengers.
In the other direction the operation will provide one of the quickest ways to the 2012 Olympics at Stratford. Up to eight trains per hour operate to Stratford National from the airport station and on to London’s Liverpool Street.
Now owned by the Stobart Plc transport infrastructure organisation Southend Airport will also see the introduction of easyJet services to Alicante, Amsterdam, Belfast, Barcelona, Faro, Ibiza, Jersey, Majorca and Malaga from Monday 2 April. www.aerarann.com
