London Southend (SEN) Airport

London Southend SEN Airport Overview

London Southend Airport SEN is Greater London's, Britain's & Europe's fastest-growing airport - operated by London Southend Airport Co. The evident success of London Southend Airport is attributable to its continuous upgrade, and its promise that passengers wait no more than four minutes to go through security, and arriving passeners with only carry-ons travel from plane to train within 15 mins of exiting the aircraft.

SEN Airport is located about 40 miles east of Central London, and 38 miles from Stratford, and is just off motorway A127, which in turn offers access to motorways M25, A13, A12 & on to Central London - taking about one hour.

With over 970K passengers annually, and a recently extended runway, London Southend Airport is mainly served by EasyJet Airlines offering year-round & seasonal European destinations, and presently by  Aer Lingus (operated by Aer Arann) to Dublin. Flybe will offer summer services to Newquay in Cornwall, and Thomson Airways, operated by Volotea, offers seasonal Palma de Mallorca flights.
