London Southend Airport (IATA: SEN, ICAO: EGMC) is an international airport in the district of Rochford within Essex, England, approximately 42 miles (68 km) from the centre of London.
During the 1960s, Southend was London’s third-busiest airport. It remained London’s third-busiest airport in terms of passengers handled until the end of the 1970s, when the role of “London’s third airport” passed to Stansted. Following its purchase by Stobart Group in 2008, a development programme provided a new terminal and control tower, extended runway, and connection to central London via the regular rail service running between Liverpool Street Station & Southend Airport Station on the Shenfield-Southend line, continuing on to Southend Victoria.
EasyJet began operating services by opening a base at Southend in April 2012 and Irish carrier Aer Lingus Regional began regular flights to Dublin in May, resulting in a rapid increase in airport passenger numbers to 617,027 during 2012; 721,661 passengers used the airport in 12 months following the start of these services, with 969,912 in 2013, and 1,102,358 in 2014, though 2015 saw a decline in passenger numbers to 900,648. The airport operator hopes to increase passenger numbers to two million per year by 2020.
London Southend airports runway length is 5265 feet and is specifically structured for Small props, Small Jets and Regional Airliners.
