Don't blame them quite honestly, the airport has gone from little to no flights to day and night in a short space of time and at some stage there has to be questions asked of suitability!

Certainly it was a bold (or rash?) move to introduce noisy night flights. The Metroliners which used to operate nocturnal cargo flights were much quieter by comparison.

Rough timings so everyone knows what we are talking about. They’re operated by ASL with 2x B737-400F - should be 7 days a week to the same times. It’s interesting that they’re operating an evening rotation as the EMA base mainly runs early morning to late afternoon.

Until now the neighbours have had some winter respite, with later starts for the jets some days, earlier finishes and few movements midweek. The freight operation will put paid to that.

Rumoured elsewhere a bunch of Lauda routes from PMI to U.K. are being announced tomorrow. With DUB and PMI the only routes on sale, what is the betting SEN is one of those routes with DUB being either dropped or operated from DUB base?

As a near local (Eastwood, Astronauts Estate) I can confirm the new night flights did wake me up but only the first flight on the first morning of operation at about 04.50 and boy it was loud and only the 2nd time in the past 6 years that an early departure has woken me, not only loud on take off but off into the distance. Lots of chatter on local Facebook page that day but not so much since, that may be because windows are getting closed due to colder weather or the pilots have been reminded about noise abatement?

Updated CAA stats are out too. Of the three LM routes CAX had the strongest LF at 63.2% (21 pax per flight). ABZ and GLA both averaged around 30 per flight (61-62%). Will be interesting to see how loads hold up with the reduction to 2x daily.

The routes to GCI and NQY look quite strong although you’d expect that for August. NQY appears to have performed stronger than BE’s own operation out of STN last year even with the shift from LGW to LHR and increase in frequency.

So everything seems back on track with Ryanair finally confirming their summer 2020 schedule. Joining the party today, Wizz, due at 2045 with the first flight from Sibiu. Didn't get the Dundee service but you can't win them all.

Just noticed FR seem to be in the process of adding Bergerac and Marseille at the moment.

Indeed it has. Reus has been retained, so yet more choice.

One puzzle. Is it me, or have the great and the good who have added so much to this thread over the last few years taken a solemn vow of silence? I would really love a few posts from those who previously waxed lyrically and eloquently every time an additional parking space was provided, or a new beer was on offer airside.

Surely, we have not become so blase over the positive events at SEN that a new route is not worthy of comment?

An impressive nocturnal water arch provided for the arriving Wizz Air 320. Video on the LSA ATC FB page (that's a lot of abbreviations....).

The Evening Echo (God bless 'em) carries the Ryanair story now listing six new routes:
  • Bergerac;
  • Bucharest;
  • Girona;
  • Marseille;
  • Venice Treviso; and
  • Vilnius, in Lithuania.
The Echo quotes Ryanair’s Alejandra Ruiz: “Since the start of our operations in London Southend in April, we have carried more than 650,000 customers, and based on this success to date we are delighted to extend our services at Southend with six new routes for summer 2020."Our London Southend summer 2020 schedule features 16 routes in total, which will deliver 850,000 customers per year."

I for one would be posting if there was anything substantial to report. All that RYR have done is confirm their faith in SEN for 2020 by adding a few new routes while at the same time dropping others, so just reassuring rather than noteworthy. In fact the number of RYR weekly rotations for June 2020 currently stands at 62; virtually the same as Summer 2019. It will be interesting to see if EZY add some new destinations for S2020 and particularly what Flybe/Virgin Connect have planned for SEN. That may prove worthy of comment but we'll have to wait and see.
