Southend Summer 2016

easyJet has introduced a four times per week service to Paris Charles de Gaulle that will operate all year round. As with all easyJet flights out of Southend (SEN) it is flown by a 156-seat Airbus A319.

The airline points out that since SEN is not the busiest of London’s airports aircraft are unlikely to be held up on the approach and for passengers arriving and departing the station is directly opposite the terminal, literally yards away.  There are trains up to six times per hour from Liverpool Street stopping at Stratford (Underground and Overground) and at intermediate stations.  A Holiday Inn (great for views) is a short walk away.

easyJet now serves 17 points from SEN, new for this season Lyon (France) and Lanzarote (Canary Islands).

Southend was recently named ‘Best Airport in Britain’ by Which? magazine for the third year running.

Glyn Jones, CEO of airport owner Stobart Aviation, said: "We are absolutely delighted that easyJet is now offering another route from London Southend. With excellent access, our own station and car parks right next to the terminal, superb customer service – and now even more fantastic destinations – it's no surprise that more and more people are choosing simply easier Southend."   www.southendairport.com
