Easyjet to operate 70 flights a week from Southend

Low cost airline Easyjet has announced that it is to begin flying from Southend Airport. The airline expects to fly 800,000 passengers from the site in its first year. It will operate 70 flights per week with destinations including Barcelona, Faro and Ibiza.

Alastair Welch of Southend Airport said: "We are delighted to announce our partnership with Easyjet, servicing a comprehensive variety of routes into Europe.

"A new state-of-the-art control tower is now operational, work on our runway extension is underway, as is a new terminal building to be completed this autumn. A new hotel will open in 2012."

The move has come on the back of a new control tower being constructed at the airport earlier in the year.
