Southend Airport is owned by Stobart Group not Flybe. London City isn’t as expensive as you think if you take a look at the published landing charges. Southend is a poor move in my opinion. It has poor links to London and more expensive than Gatwick, Stansted and Luton. Heathrow actually would’ve been a smart move. Heathrow are offering relatively cheap landing fees for domestic flights nowadays and Flybe have spare Heathrow slots...
