SEN is different. Firstly it serves London. It has a large catchment area which is highly populated and affluent. BOH, whilst wealthy, has a fairly small catchment - with half of its catchment area being the English Channel. To the west is BRS with over 50 destinations, to the East LGW with 100+ destinations.

The fact that EZY have over 20 bases and only operate flights from one of them speaks volumes to me. There's no Milan, Berlin, Hamburg, Paris, Nice, Lyon, Barcelona, Toulouse, Venice or Naples. Nor are there any flights from their UK bases. They could easily operate those flights from BOH but have so far not seen the demand to warrant flights to them. Nor have they operated W patterns to anywhere else (except for GVA).

Maybe, but SEN has the advantage of a direct rail link to London.

...for some of the time. At other times it has no public transport so is no better than BOH

It's no better than SEN apart from the vastly larger population on its doorstep just a short drive away.

If you are referring to the late train issue then *yawn* this has been talked to death! While it
Is essential that they try to resolve this issue I think the fact that there are 4 trains an hour depating from the airports on site station direct to London upto 2300, and of course if you are traveling into Southend town the trains run considerably later, means it's on a slightly different footing to BOH!

fair enough thanks all! Didn't quite realise just how much of a catchment area SEN has on its' doorstep, along with the infrastructure. Bit naive of me really! Being a west-country bumpkin I suppose I don't know whats happening 'up east'! But BOH I suppose is situated close enough for either BRS or LGW. So rightfully so, why then would EZY consider a start up with 2 massive basses for them very similar distances apart. But a 2 hour 15 min drive to each airport is further than I anticipated!!

SEN won't be seeing any additional flights this summer (according to the timetable), although I don't know if this is the same for the LTN or LGW routes.

It certainly isn't vastly larger. Within a twenty mile radius from SEN there are over three quarters of a million people.

Does SEN only have a 20 mile catchment area? How many live within 1 hours drive compared to BOH? I can't believe people are comparing a London airport with a large town on the south coast. They are not the same.

I may have misunderstood. I thought you were saying BOH had a vastly larger population on its doorstep, including Southampton presumably.

SEN is not a London airport in reality, 50% of the catchment area with SEN at it's centre is fish.....it's a common problem when you're on the coast far away from competing airports with wholly land based options in that circle See also Manston.

Are easyJet about to announce a route to Casablanca from London Gatwick?

And I see a route in the booking engine between Manchester and Tivat in Montenegro, hadn't heard about this and also surprised that is just a single route to Manchester, would have expected them to try Gatwick first.

Tivat is already served from Gatwick plus Ryanair flies from Stansted to Podgorica. Manchester has the advantage of no competition.

Easyjet have recently posted on their Facebook site that they intend to release March to late June flights in September 2016 and June to Sept the following month..They might well bring those dates forward but then you might be as well looking elsewhere, if you need to know.

EZY and EZS combined have now more than 100 A320 in their fleet.

Further 50 A320ceo and 130 A320neo (+ options) on order.
