Totally different market, LCY service will target business travellers. I can't really see it working to be honest. Not sure if their is enough central London business pax to warrant the service, particularly with a foreign airline for BUD with no connections either side.

I can see EZY one day replacing the BE SEN route. They currently only serve LGW and fares are redicilously high all year round to BUD on thurs, fri, sun and Mon with all the weekend stag and city breaks, so yields must be decent. Could be a good fit in their route network/London ops and touristy enough for SEN to sustain its own market with all the competition from other London airports.
