Good news about the new flights but has the Echo has got it wrong re; Cologne-Bonn? This flight WAS scheduled to fly from July 5th, but was then withdrawn because Ryanair wanted to start Cologne flights from Stansted, and the route was replaced by Masstricht. l emailed Southend Airport on the 17th April and they have confirmed it. Would be good if they`ve changed their minds and reintroduced it.
    Copy n paste The Echo cod learn nothing from you!
    What`s your problem, you`ve got a HUGE chip on your shoulder, and obviously, like all keyboard cowards, you wouldn`t dare say anything to my face.
    I don`t understand, or want to particularly understand the mentality of someone like you, who seems to get a kick out of saying nasty things to a person they`ve never even met !! you are unbelievable.

    There was NOTHING wrong with my post, but l wouldn`t mind betting you and your moronic like minded cronies gang up together like the sheep you are to give me the thumbs down, yet you haven`t got the bottle to communicate rationally and say what it is you didn`t like. PATHETIC.

    l feel sorry for pathetic, non communicative people like you, but l WILL NOT be bullied or coerced into anything,so l hope you understand the message, and any more unnecessary and nasty comments, to someone you don`t even know WILL be reported. You are picking, or rather attempting to pick, on the wrong one here l can assure you."

New flights to Europe are hit for Flybe

Southend Standard: New European destinations proving popular New European destinations proving popular

ALMOST 10,000 tickets have been sold for new routes from Southend Airport.

Flybe, operated by Stobart Air, reports strong interest in routes to Groningen, Muster Osnabruck and Rennes which commence on June 5.

Services to Cologne Bonn, Caen Normandie and Antwerp start on July 3 and from July 10 the Maastricht route will come into operation. Monday was the busiest day yet for advance ticket bookings.

Simon Fagan, chief commercial officer for Stobart Air, said: “With almost 10,000 tickets already sold, we are on course to meet our target of carrying up to 700,000 passengers on our new London Southend routes within three years.

“Weekend bookings are quite popular and we are seeing a surge in weekday bookings as the launch day approaches.”

He added “These three routes are clearly resonating with both business and leisure passengers in Southend. Münster in Germany is a vibrant city that is home to thousands of university students.

Roger Clements, the airport’s managing director, said “We are very encouraged by the growing demand for the three routes commencing on 5 June. This bookings surge proves that London Southend is continuing to become a popular travel hub for both continental and London bound passengers. As the popularity of London Southend grows we hope that these recent route expansions will bring a boost to the economy to the local area.”

A new Flybe route from London Southend to Newquay Cornwall took off on Saturday(17/5). The airline is operating a three times a week summer service through until 27 September.
