|London Southend Airport is an international airport in the district of Rochford within Essex, England, approximately 42 miles from the centre of London.
During the 1960s, Southend was the third-busiest airport serving London. It remained the third-busiest airport in terms of passengers handled until the end of the 1970s, when the role of third airport for London passed to Stansted.
Following its purchase by Stobart Group in 2008, a development programme provided a new terminal and control tower, extended runway and connection to Central London via the regular rail service running between Liverpool Street Station & Southend Airport Station. The current airport operator forecasts a passenger level of 2 million by 2020.
Airwego Regional joins Easyjet and Aer Lingus Regional using this base to serve destinations throughout the UK and Europe with its Q400 and Embraer 170 aircraft.
