Last week easyJet launched a new service from Southend Airport to Venice and announced Edinburgh as a fresh destination. Sales Director Paul Simmons says that Southend is performing well and is above budget.
Operating on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, the flights complement the airline’s current daily service to Venice from Gatwick.
Also announced last week is a six days per week (no Saturday) all year round service from Southend to Edinburgh starting on 2 May. The airline already serves Stansted from the Scottish capital with four services daily, and at London City British Airways competes with Air France/CityJet with up to 11 daily rotations.
The news comes just three months after easyJet announced three new routes from its rapidly growing Southend base to Berlin, Krakow and Newquay bringing the total number of easyJet routes from the airport to 15 with just under 200 flights to and from the airport each week. Southend Airport is well connected to London with up to 12 trains per hour from its station to Liverpool Street, just by the Bank of England. www.southendairport.com www.easyjet.com
