Posted 12 December 2017 · Add Comment

EasyJet has today announced it will operate four new routes to Bordeaux, Prague, Dubrovnik and Pula (Croatia), from London Southend Airport in 2018.



Bordeaux will start on 25th July 2018 and operates three times a week. Prague starts on 27 July 2018 and will be twice weekly. The two Croatian routes - Dubrovnik (starts 28 July 2018) and Pula (starts 27 July 2018) - will also operate twice weekly.

The new routes mean easyJet now flies to 20 destinations from London Southend Airport – the airline is expecting to fly around 32,000 passengers between the destinations and LSA next summer.

EasyJet has seen sustained expansion at London Southend Airport in recent months having launched its first flight to Malta in October and introduced an additional Airbus A320 aircraft for next summer - the fourth aircraft to be based at London Southend. 

Sophie Dekkers, Director, UK Market, easyJet said “We’re delighted to be adding four new summer routes from London Southend Airport. This announcement of our expansion today highlights our commitment to providing affordable routes to summer holiday destinations. We’re sure that they will prove extremely popular for those looking for a summer break or visiting friends and family.  

“Whether our customers want to sample the historic city culture of Prague, the guaranteed sun hot-spots of Dubrovnik and Pula or to make the short hop to the southern French port city famed for its red wine, Bordeaux - we expect all our new routes to be especially popular with passengers and it also underlines our commitment to LSA.”

Glyn Jones, Chief Executive Officer of Stobart Aviation that owns London Southend Airport says “I am sure these new easyJet destinations will prove very popular with passengers from Essex and the South East - thanks to our partnership with easyJet, and other airlines, we now have a fantastic mix of more than 30 leisure and business destinations for people to explore.

"We’re also thrilled that the UK’s largest airline is investing in a fourth aircraft at London Southend Airport. It's proof of our strong partnership with easyJet and demonstrates their continued confidence and commitment to providing an exemplary service for our passengers. We currently serve over one million passengers a year with more and more people realising that we are a better way to travel.”
