London Southend Airport (SEN) Information

Southend Airport is an international airport in Essex, 42 miles (68 km) from the centre of London. Connection to central London is via the regular rail service running from Liverpool Street Station.

The airfield was established by the Royal Flying Corps during World War I and many sorties were flown against Zeppelin airship raiders and during World War II, it became a base for fighter squadrons. In the 1960s, Southend was London's third-busiest airport until Stansted Airports numbers grew and overtook it.

EasyJet began operating out of Southend in 2012 and Aer Lingus Regional began regular flights to Dublin in the same year resulting in a rapid growth of passenger numbers that year.

Southend Airport has an excellent weather record and is used by airlines as a diversion alternative when adverse weather or incidents close other London airports. It has also been voted the best airport in Britain for three years running by Which? between 2013 to 2015.

Southend Meet and Greet

Best meet and greet we’ve ever had. Literally 3 or 4 minutes wait when we first arrived at the car park before the driver was dropped off to take our car. On our return, by the time we’d crossed the road and entered the short stay car park, our car was coming through the entrance barrier. Fantastic service from really friendly guys. Thank you so much. Would thoroughly recommend.
