  • London Southend ready for 2012 Olympics

    The UK’s Secretary of State for Transport, Justine Greening, has officially opened London Southend Airport’s new ‘Fly Through’ passenger terminal.
    Greening, who was at Heathrow last week for the ‘topping out’ ceremony of its new Terminal 2, said the new facility was a huge boost for Stobart Group-owned Southend ahead of the 2012 Olympics in London.
    “This is a huge step forward for London Southend Airport. I would like to congratulate Stobart Group on the excellent facilities, which will make a real difference for passengers.
    “This is also good news for the region. Not only will the 500 new jobs created by the summer provide a real boost to the local economy and to the broader Thames Gateway region, the redevelopment will bring new opportunities to both business and tourism.
    The first passengers to use the new Fly Through terminal, named for its convenience and efficiency, landed from Waterford in Ireland on one of the daily Aer Arann Regional services to London Southend.
    From April 2, easyJet will start its schedule of daily flights from the airport, with 70 services per week to Amsterdam, Alicante, Barcelona, Belfast, Faro, Ibiza, Jersey, Malaga and Mallorca.
