Southend Airport extension

The extension to Southend Airport, taking its capacity up towards two million passengers per year, is on schedule to be completed by Monday 17 June when easyJet will deliver a fourth aircraft.  On the Monday the airline introduces a daily (except Saturday) service to Berlin (Schönefeld) and four times a week flights to Krakow; plus on Thursday 20 June a summer only operation on Thursday, Saturday and Tuesday to Newquay.  In total easyJet will serve 15 destinations from the East London airport this summer.

Stage 1 of the terminal became operational a year ago and is less than 100 paces from the new railway station with up to eight trains per hour to London’s Liverpool Street station.  The extension adds 90 metres and will open in phases throughout 2013.  Phase 1 – an enlarged ‘airside’ Arrivals – followed by a security area increase opening in October.  November will see larger check-in desks / baggage drop off facility and finally at the end of the year the enlargement of the Departure Lounge. www.easyjet.com www.southendairport.com
