New Southend Airport terminal to open by June
5:30pm Tuesday 12th March 2013 in Local News
SOUTHEND Airport’s new terminal extension will be open by June.
Airport bosses hope to be using part of the £10million building - an expanded arrivals area - by the time a fourth easyJet aircraft arrives this summer.
The rest of the extension, which will add an extra 90 metres to the existing building and create 300 jobs, is due to open in phases by the end of the year.
Alastair Welch, the airport’s managing director, said: “We want to make sure that we continue to deliver a very special level of customer service for our passengers in Southend and this extension ensures that we will continue to deliver those high standards as the airport grows.
“The extension is taking shape and the work is on track to hit our target of an extended arrivals area by the time the fourth easyJet aircraft arrives in June to make its new home in Southend and flights to Berlin, Krakow and Newquay get under way.”
