London Southend is London’s newest and a sustainable airport, excellently located within our 8.2 million catchment area. We are ready to serve the fastest growing and ever-developing East London and the East of England.

Speedily and easily accessed by a direct train journey of just 43 minutes from London Stratford, a great road network and just 41 miles by road from central London and an unparalleled, proven arrivals experience taking an average of just 7 minutes from plane seat to train seat, we will become the London airport of choice for more and more passengers and airlines – London being the world’s largest aviation market of 179 million passengers (157 million O & D passengers).

Our passenger experience is second to none. For seven consecutive years we have been awarded “Best Airport Terminal in London” awarded by Which? Magazine’s Airport Passenger Survey 2013 – 2019.

We were one of the UK’s fastest-growing airports pre-pandemic. In 2019 we saw more than 2 million passengers and 40+ viable short-haul routes.

We operate our own uncongested controlled airspace and lower handling & operating costs vs other competing London airports.

London Southend Airport continues to invest in maintaining its modern infrastructure such as a new hold baggage system in 2021, CTix security equipment introduced from 2020, a new website and over 25% of our terminals annual energy usage from an onsite generated renewable source, its own solar farm.

From commissioning, the direct carbon reduction equates to the planting of over 40 million trees and counting.
