easyJet announced (16-May-2024) plans to open a 10th UK base at London Southend Airport from Mar-2025. The carrier will base three A320neo aircraft at the airport and launch six new routes to Pisa, Gran Canaria, Dalaman, Antalya, Marrakech and Enfidha for summer 2025. Additional new routes will be announced in the coming weeks. The investment will create around 130 direct jobs for pilots and crew and additional indirect jobs. easyJet already serves Amsterdam, Geneva, Faro, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga and Paris CDG from Southend and has handled over seven million passengers from the airport since 2012.
