Southend Airport, owned by the Stobart Group Plc, which as Stobart Aviation flies as a franchise for both Aer Lingus (Regional) and Flybe, has published its winter programme.
The popular route to Dublin becomes twice daily with flights flown by Stobart ATR aircraft, as a Flybe operation instead of Aer Lingus Regional, the branding adding to the six BE (Stobart ATR) routes established by the Exeter based airline during the summer. The Dublin flights connect with many Aer Lingus services to the USA, all customs and immigration requirements being dealt with at Dublin. No hold ups with the authorities. The North Atlantic flights have to get away on time.
Flybe serves Antwerp three times daily and Groningen, Maastricht, Muenster Rennes have at least a single rotation every day. Caen is three times weekly.
As per last winter easyJet will withdraw one of its Airbus A319 aircraft leaving three to operate services to Berlin’s very accessible Schönefeld Airport, and Amsterdam, Alicante, Barcelona, Faro, Malaga, Geneva, Tenerife and Venice. None of the routes are daily.
A new arrival at the airport is the Swiss operator Skywork which is transferring its flights to Bern from London City Airport on 27 October. See also Leeds to Dublin in this issue www.southendairport.com
