EasyJet to fly to Malta from Southend Airport

Posted 11 July 2017 · Add Comment

A new all year round easyJet route flying twice a week from London Southend Airport to Malta will commence 29 October 2017.



Boasting year round warm weather, never-ending sunshine and some of the most perfectly clear waters in the Mediterranean, the Maltese Islands are one of Europe’s most popular destinations.



Located just south of Sicily, Malta and its accompanying islands of Gozo and Comino, offers up an unlimited number of cultural and natural treats - 7,000 years of history (including three World Heritage Sites) temples that outdate both the Pyramids and Stonehenge, magnificent medieval walled towns complete with Baroque cathedrals and winding back streets.



The famous coastline boasts some of the best diving sites in not only the Mediterranean but the world.

The Maltese Islands’ weather is great all year round, so there is no best time to visit. Summers are long and hot, boasting temperatures well into the 30s coupled with almost no rain. Winter sees average highs of around 19 degrees and six hours of sunshine a day.



London Southend has its own train station with up to six trains per hour to and from the heart of London and a 15-minute ‘train to plane’ promise, it means you can be in the Departure Lounge – and on your way to the beach, in under an hour. 

Glyn Jones, CEO at London Southend Airport said: “I am sure Malta will prove to be yet another hugely popular destination to passengers from Essex and the South East. Thanks to our partnership with easyJet, and other airlines, we now have a fantastic mix of around 30 leisure and business destinations for people to explore.”

Sophie Dekkers, easyJet’s Director – UK Market, said: “We’re delighted to announce another new route from London Southend Airport. Year-round flights to Malta provide our passengers from across the region with another holiday destination to choose from and we are sure it will be very popular. We’re seeing more and more people using our services from London Southend for both leisure and business trips and we’re keen to continue adding more varied routes to our schedule.”
