Picking up a friend or family member?
Keeping tabs on the latest arrivals is a great way to plan your journey to the airport – especially when you’re picking up a friend, family member or colleague.
You can head straight to our dedicated pick-up/drop-off area in the Short Stay car park, which is directly opposite the terminal for the quickest pick up.
Alternatively, you can park for free for up to 15 minutes in Long Stay 3.

How long does it take from landing to leaving the Airport?
Landing at London Southend Airport and leaving the airport can take as little as 15 minutes! That’s, of course, on a very good day… So factor in approximately half an hour from arriving back at the airport to leaving the terminal.
What should I do if my flight into or leaving London Southend Airport is cancelled?
If your flight is cancelled, you should contact your airline or tour operator.
Airport staff will be on hand to help you, but the best source of information will be from your airline directly. Airline apps usually update fastest – often faster than information can be shared with the airport itself – so we highly recommend that you download your chosen airline’s app before your flight.
