Southend Airport to start German flights

Echo: Destination – Saarbrucken, above, is one of the German cities to which OLT says its planes will fly Destination – Saarbrucken, above, is one of the German cities to which OLT says its planes will fly

TWO German towns will be the next new destinations to flash up on the departure boards at Southend Airport , the Echo can reveal.

The airport is in talks with the budget airline, OLT Express Germany, about flights to two German destinations.

OLT has already agreed to fly from Southend to Saarbrucken, on the Franco-German border, from October 1.

A second destination has yet to be announced, but the Echo understands it may be the historic former East German city of Dresden.

An airport spokesman said: “We are in discussions with OLT Express Germany about flying out of Southend to Saarbrucken and another destination.

“Once all the plans have been finalised, we’ll be able to provide further information about the service.”

The airport has undergone a £100million transformation since it was bought by the Stobart Group in 2008.

Its rebirth began with regular Aer Arann flights to Ireland last March, followed earlier this year by a range of regular easyJet services.

The German flights will take the total number of routes available from Southend to 13, with easyJet due to add services to Geneva and Venice to its roster later this winter.

Return flights to Saarbrucken will operate three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and are likely to cost £77.

The town is 47 miles from the Luxembourg border, 56 miles from Strasbourg and 93 miles from Frankfurt.

Dresden, already a favourite tourist destination, is known for its Baroque city centre, and for its china.

Joachim Klein, chief executive of OLT Express Germany, said: “With our new routes, we will expand the existing offer from Saarbrucken Airport.

“We are sure that we can establish ourselves here with this attractive mix of flights, the high quality of our product and our low prices, and be economically successful.”

very good news.....Dresden is not yet confirmed, but tickets are on sale to Saarbrucken. It's a pleasant city with plenty of shops, restaurants and hotels, i guess nice for two or three nights mini-break, or rent a car and explore the Saar region. Things to see and do are on Wikitravel website. Cheap flights, comfortable jets, one hour or so....great news.

Things are gradually taking off to use a pun.
It would be good to see more German destinations, and how about Austria? Ryanair are cutting their flights to Graz over the winter, and there is apparently a question mark over whether they will restore them for the summer. That could be worth someone having a look, and there would seem to be room for another budget operator to Vienna, as Easyjet reduced their services a couple of years ago and British Midland who ran budget flights have disappeared.

i bet Jayman is not a happy bunny today. He may say "only three flights inbound a week", but if successful, things could really grow. EasyJet will not announce any new routes until the terminal and parking bays are available....middle/

Brilliant news for the airport. As it is a German airline I have a feeling it is aimed at Germans travelling to London rather than the other way round.

The key about this is that it is a new airline - as easyJet has demonstrated, an airline is far more likely to add routes from a current airport than move to a new one.

More flights from Southend Airport "das macht mich glücklich" as they would say in Germany.
Hope that is right, no doubt jayman will kick off again again again. I will ask again jayman what would you do if someone in your family got a job at Southend airport? Don't come back with what we all know you will put "no one in my family would work there" the truth come on, would you like the fact they have a job or would you want the airport to close so they loose it?

i would love to know why you think im a supporter or member of skipp or saen. they are both groups who are either portrayed as nut jobs by the echo or play into that by not realising that there is no 'or very little' independent local press in Southend.

they would be better off discontinuing all press releases and protests and focus on petitions and lobbying,

failing that they could always get a local Tory councillor to be there PR agent. lol.

all you get out of the echo 'printed edition' are a few sensible comments in the readers letters page. perhaps a small morsel of good journalistic content here and there within the pages.. failing that you have the local news source of Southend radio, with its emm 'unique' interpretation of news.

the problem is all the local papers in Southend are printed under one umbrella organisation. I couldn't possibly air my opinions on Southend radio news for legal reasons,

the only other source of news is word of mouth.

a good editor should ask themselves "would i run (any) story that is in the public interest if it is factually true and legally and ethically sourced without any pressure by a third party to do otherwise" and "would i refuse to print a story outside of the above criteria"

i think most editors would fail the jayman test..

yes. the term NIMBY may apply to most areas of the uk but not so much in Southend as not all families in Southend have the benefit of a 'backyard' or 'back garden'

You say this is article is an advert as no other news group has picked up on the story, no other news group has picked up skipps attempt to get Central Library listed so is that an advert too?

Bet you were over the moon with tonight’s Echo two pages of anti-airport people moaning about noise, pollution, dust and loss of property value they are starting a group action for “millions”

I do not support Manchester United as they play farcical football that causes a distraction will that make me a Nimby?

Jayman, if the airport is SOOOOOOO bad for Southend, as you are maintaining, then why are you the only one objecting.

IIIMBY - It is in my back yard. I live under the flight path and have no problem with it whatsoever.

One thing I enjoy about low-cost carriers with a good network of flights is the ability to plan during, say 10 days, the opportunity to visit multi-cities. A few years ago,I did that with Ryanair from Frankfurt-Pisa-Malta
-Madrid-Frankfurt ( total13 nights) buying cheap one-way tickets. Now OLTexpress offers travellers the possibility to do the same, for example, Southend-Dresden-Vie
nna-Saarbrucken-Sout
hend. At 49 euros (£40) basic charge one-way on offer (at the moment) on all of their routes, one can spend a few nights in each city, buying best discount hotel rates on-line. We do it often; it's great fun for around £200 for all air tickets (if you're lucky).

Of course, we must not forget you can do the same thing using EasyJet by buying cheap single tickets (try to avoid travelling weekends), for example Southend-Amsterdam-R
ome-Madrid-Southend. Stay three nights or so in each wonderful city. Ideal for students and retired people too!

At 5 ish today, I had an easy jet plane fly over my house that I considered quiet! Have never had one like that before and to be fair would have no problem if they were normally like that. Problem being they are not. So, please can someone tell me why one plane today has caused absolutely no problem and would be a pleasure if all were like it. I not a member of either site.

Over my house, taking off. As said, if they were like that... No problem and good luck to them. I was on phone at time, made no difference. Every single one prior has...my question is WHY? I am not someone who is either for or against, yet sorry, have hated the noise over my house, it has changed and increased and those whose cannot a understand that seem a little naughty I feel . We are not all the idiots you so go against, therefore do not wish to be involved on these sites, but I suppose have no choice but to support them. Judging by responses of others on here, unless you are for the airport you are hounded. I ,ale no excuses for mistakes, I am not at meeting, have engaged in a viino. Still why can 1 plain do it and all the rest can't.....so many less complaints I feel......

Fair enough, am sure you got the gist though, am on tea now....one glass enough for me, but surly you do understand my point? Regardless of my stupid bits at end? Still why? Why, can one aircraft be so quiet and all the rest be so blooming noisy? If all aircraft were like that... no complaints? come on, it's not rocket science.

The comp chasers want £MILLIONS in loss of property value they recon they can bankrupt Stobarts! They recon anyone in Southend can claim even if you live nowhere near the airport, looks like the no win no fee ambulance chasers are rubbing their grubby hands with glee, they might say no win no fee but what about the insurance policy most say you have to take out before they will take a case on, also if the claim is proven frivolous then the claimant is liable for costs. So think first, think long and hard, shame people would be happy trying to bankrupt a company that employs thousands.

You make a fair point, although I feel the bankrupt statement overrated! I have complained a couple of times to the airport and have been told over the phone that I imagined it! Ha ha , after a glass of vino perhaps...but then that only happens every few months. But as stated before I am not supporting either side in their arguments, but am fed up with the increased disruption I have noticed. To be fair some days are not as bad as others. Also as said, the plane on Friday was no issue what so ever and if they were all like that there would be no issue to begin with.
I do feel though after talking to people who did attend Fridays meeting and and one who works at the airport, that should you give an opinion of disliking the noise, anyone who does not would quite happliy line you up in front of a firing squad. The amount of people who feel let down and have had their lives changed seems to be a lot larger than predicted. If there is no noise and no one disrupted then why would anyone supporting the development be concerned? ( ps not a chaser as you stated, will put up and move out if it comes to that).

Shame about the Saarbrucken flights. Seems odd that they are still operating them for two weeks before terminating them. Maybe too many tickets were sold to cancel altogether. Hoping for Baden-Baden to replace it.
