The improvements to the baggage reclaim area are certainly a good idea. It's pretty congested on the (admittedly fairly rare!) occasions when two or three flights arrive together. Hopefully such arrivals will soon be a more common occurrence.

News of a new operator and the routes should be announced before Christmas, but of course only if signed and finalised by both parties.
Exciting news if it goes through, but for now I am not at liberty to state the airline. I can see that from next June, SEN could have a much busier departures/arrivals board than what they have now.

What uk based(assuming its uk) airlines use A319/20s that could use SENs shortish runway?

Would not the much speculated Wizzair be the most likely candidate?

It would have to be a considerable operation from Wizz into SEN to make the arrivals board busier. I would have a punt at BA as they too were specifically mentioned by Glyn Jones in a press article a few months back.

Who said anything about UK, or basing at SEN? I agree Wizz is most likely going on previous rumours, but it could also be Vueling or Volotea. The latter of course already operate and have some bases that don't have that much competition to London.

Looking at the Flybe Online Timetable for June 2018 I see that three based EMB195 aircraft will be needed to operate the SEN schedule in addition to two ATRs.

Stobart Air have a greed a deal for 3 E195s from flyBe, so this seems plausible.

To stop lots of unnecessary guesses, I can tell you that the airline concerned is British, 4 aircraft based, up to 20 destinations. But I think soon there will be an official announcement.

Well we can rule out

TUI
Thomas Cook
Jet2

I just can’t see anyone jumping into Southend with 4 Aircraft not saying I don’t want it to happen good luck if it does I jest can’t see it
Unless I’m thinking to big what size aircraft are we talking ?

I don't think it's particularly helpful if those in the know say too much until the deal is actually signed. At that stage it probably cannot do much harm but cats prematurely let out of bags tend to behave unpredictably.

I entirely agree with Expressflight. And I really do not believe there is any purpose in further public speculation. Enough to know there is "something" substantial in the pipeline. A realistic approach would be that until it is signed and announced it is not going to happen.

I don’t think that an airline that plans to base 4 aircraft who is about to announce a massive flight program imminently would suddenly change their mind and pull out of a deal just because it’s been discussed on an airline forum
If an announcement is imminent I would suggest we are already passed the signing stage

I did say that once the deal is signed "At that stage it probably cannot do much harm ...". I don't think it's yet reached that point.
