CAA Stats show 93 biz for December whereas 263 in June when LTN & STN night restictions would have been in place.

If you're referring to the story in the Echo it was the one millionth Stobart Air passenger that SEN were celebrating; nothing to do with total pax numbers.

Total aircraft movements were 32,531 in 2018, up from 26,674 in 2017. Of those 17,089 were ATMs in 2018 compared with 12,158 in 2017..

Is that not just the existing Venice service moving out?

Considering it is the start of half-term the departure board is not looking particularly healthy unlike most other airports across the country.

Which airports exactly? Gatwick? Manchester?

I count ten flights to sun/ski holiday destinations plus others to Amsterdam, Dublin etc. That seems more than quite a few UK airports.

Southend had 14 departures today according to Fr24. So not too bad for an airport of it's size. For comparison Cardiff had 16, Exeter 12, Doncaser 9 and Southampton 25.

It looks like 20 flights tomorrow which, to me, doesn't look too bad at all. Some people like their little moan, don't they?

Not moaning just reporting the facts. I would not put Exeter and Doncaster in the same division as Southend.

Been a while since I've been on this chat thread.
What's the latest update on the SEN rwy grooving work, progress against schedule, no glitches, ready on time for the new Ryanair services?

With four based EasyJet, one of which goes to the Canaries, and a couple of Stobart exactly how many flights should SEN have on a Saturday?

I would. All 3 are small regional airports under the 2 million passenger mark.

I have long memories of Luton hovering around 1.8 million passengers for years, now look at the place, as it is unrecognisable. The future can only be rosy for SEN.

Yes LTNman lets hope so but SEN could never reach anywhere near the PAX numbers of LTN, mainly because of the limited space of the airport to expand and the runway length, however if someone had suggested even a year ago that Ryanair would set up a base at SEN i would have never believed it. I think if all goes well during the next few years i feel a max capacity of 5 million PAX a year would be very good due to the airports restraints.

The resurfacing is 80% complete and then the grooving will be done. Approx one week ahead of schedule so all looks good. Thank you for asking.

Excellent news! Ryanair got a great deal from SEN and no doubt SEN will do very, very well from their new pals at Ryanair. I reckon long term car parks 2 and 3 are going to hit capacity now, may need consideration for a 3 or 5 storey car park on one of those existing footprints.

Fantastic job creating partnership for the immediate SEN catchment area. Brexit? what about it? the revenues will flow in at SEN, Brexit has no damaging impact. Onwards and upwards with confidence!
