Echo: Flybe launches flights from Southend to six new European destinations Flybe launches flights from Southend to six new European destinations

FLYBE, Europe’s largest regional airline, has started three of its six new European routes from Southend Airport.

Passengers departed on flights to Rennes in France, Münster Osnabrück in Germany and Groningen in the Netherlands over the course of the day yesterday, whilst inbound passengers from these destinations arrived to London Southend Airport for the first time.

Flybe’s services to Antwerp, Caen Normandy and Maastricht come into operation next month.

The Flybe branded routes are operated by Stobart Air as part of a franchise agreement between the two airlines. Stobart Air has targeted 200,000 passengers on its six new London Southend services in the first full year of operations, rising to 700,000 passengers within three years.

Julian Carr, Managing Director, Stobart Air, said “Today marks a significant step for Stobart Air, with the start of our new services here at London Southend Airport. We are delighted to be up and running and look forward to today’s passengers being the first of thousands who will experience our services in the years ahead. Bookings for these new routes have been strong since they were first announced in April. We are seeing a growing response from both leisure and business passengers who are attracted by competitive prices, convenient schedules and the efficiency of London Southend Airport.

“For the 20 million people living within two hours of London Southend Airport, the six new routes offer people direct access to some of Europe’s most charming cultural hubs and important trading markets.

"The availability of daily return services on some of the routes means people can do a day’s business and be back home that evening.”

Roger Clements, Managing Director, Southend Airport said “This is a special day for London Southend Airport. Launching three new routes in a single day signifies the development that this airport is undergoing, and how far we have advanced. We are delighted to welcome our newest passengers, and look forward to showing them the benefits London Southend Airport has to offer, like up to eight trains per hour into the heart of London in just 53-minutes.

"For many on these new routes, this is the first direct connection to London. It links a whole new audience to one of the world’s most important cities, and this is very significant. We have seen that the more people experience London Southend’s comfort, convenience and efficiency, the more popular it becomes. We look forward to Flybe’s newest passengers enjoying a similar experience.”

Very good news indeed, adding another range of services available to and from the airport.
And as they are using the sort of aircraft that have been using the airport's runway for many years, I'm sure jayman and SAEN will join in welcoming this positive development that will provide more opportunities for employment in the area.

So destinations available are now;
Alicante
Amsterdam
Antwerp (from July)
Barcelona
Berlin
Caen (from July)
Dublin
Faro
Geneva
Groningen
Ibiza
Jersey
Krakow
Maastricht (from July)
Malaga

I guss you could call this good news , but at what cost , the airport newest cost saving venture is to deposit 1,159, 897 gallons of trade effluent (per day) into the prittle and eastwood brooks as a comparrison and average size swimming pool holds an estimated 15,000 gallons. This effluent will be jettisoned in to the brooks at 220 ltrs per second , as a further comparison, an average pressure washer uses 300 ltrs per hour. I guess that all the people who fly must be feel ok with pollouting their own country for the sake of a two week break or less. Or what is more probable is that they dont know. The aiport is without doubt having a negative affect on people , depending where you live you have stong smell of aviation fuel fumes, the air we breath is not only loaded with pollon but also nurotoxins from the aircraft, now the water around us is going to be devastated, the torrent of flow will be enough to rip vegitation and wash it away including any wild life. the environment agency should be utterly ahamed.

I am not against avaition so urge anybody who is considering flying (espeacily if you live in the area) to fly from an aiport that has proper facilities to dispose of trade efflunt , and not line the pockets of a private company , basicaly you are paying them to pollute your area. information from environment agency and as always my opinion.

Erm.... No why waste fuel driving to another airport, pay for car parking when I can walk to Southend.

People like you are nothing more than a joke, against your local airport citing airborne pollution but you are MORE than happy to use other airports, so what you are saying I am more than happy to fly over someone's house but don't you DARE fly over mine...

Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton are all operated by private companies and NOT the state, so your logic is shall we say floored flat on its back with a KO!

1.15 million gallons a day? Is that correct? It sounds an awful lot for a major river to accept, yet alone a small brook.

Perhaps a few promises that where forged under the em, less-then-official auspices of the Tory network will now be rendered 'worthless' in the grand scheme of things. The airport may have to stand on its own feet. what happened the last time that the airport found itself in such a position? OMG! the airport may EVEN have to pay its RENT! heaven forbid...

I think the airport is brilliant. It has created job opportunities, increased local property prices, makes it much easier for people to travel etc. what is to dislike about that? I would like Stobart, to consider digging up Rochford golf club,perhaps this could then be used for a second runway?

I think the airport is brilliant. It has created job opportunities, increased local property prices, makes it much easier for people to travel etc. what is to dislike about that? I would like Stobart, to consider digging up Rochford golf club,perhaps this could then be used for a second runway?

According to Topcat, it is the anti airport brigade, who, rather than say WHY they just anonymously vote people down. Really good at communication the brits, but l don`t care what people like that think, if indeed they do think at all, just seems an automatic reflex action on the down button, oh and not forgetting the saddos who just love to mark anything down.
