Southend Airport is now easier to access than ever before after securing an agreement for a daily bus service from London. 

From Saturday, an agreement between London Southend Airport and Ensign Bus will see a daily bus service from London Victoria to the airport. 

The bus service will be arriving from 4:30am and departing as late as 23:40 from Southend Airport to London Victoria, where customers can quickly and easily transfer to the London Underground and rail services to the south of England.

London Victoria is the second busiest London travel terminus, with more than 85 million passengers using the facilities each year. 

The agreement builds on news earlier this year that London-based passengers are benefiting from new early arrival and late departure trains operated by Greater Anglia trains from London Liverpool Street station to London Southend Airport station, and up to six services an hour.

Glyn Jones, CEO of Stobart Aviation, said: “We were already one of London’s best-connected airports and this exciting deal with the Ensign Bus Company makes accessing London Southend Airport even easier.

“We have found that more and more people are using London Southend Airport and its rapidly expanding network of over 40 routes. And there is a reason why Which? rates us the best London airport. For those who have not yet experienced our award-winning airport, I invite you to visit us via our exceptional rail and bus links.”
