I see the LTN trolls are back.

Yes as noted the Monday AGP has gone except for October Half Term. This is a loss of 18 flights.

FAO originally wasnít operating the whole season, now it ends 31/10. I think this is 5 extra flights but it could be 7.

Net loss - 13 flights. I make that 5.6% of the operation from now until 31/10. Not sure how this compares to LTN or other bases but believe itís much lower than LGW.

LGW is not a good comparison when EZY have 3-7 flights a day to a popular destination. Removing one is inconvenient only.
They were due to have 6 more dry leased planes across the network this summer but with crew issues that is no more.

I am pleased to see SEN is picking up some more Biz traffic but I think not having a recognised FBO is holding them back.

There is nothing even remotely trollish regarding previous posts, just facts.

Actually that isnít correct, if you look at the LGW changes thereís a high number of reductions on routes that donít operate daily and where thereís no other London option. Thatís far more problematic than one more or less day, or going back correct day to a different airport.

Remove 5.6% of flights from Luton still means a very busy terminal so wouldn’t be noticeable.
Remove 5.6% of flights from Southend means an empty terminal on 13 occasions for much of the day, which would be noticeable.


On a separate note it is very hard to find out what destinations are available when flying from Southend. A quick look on the airports website shows details of many destinations that are not even routes.

I'm sure that is true but not an easy problem to solve unfortunately.

Luton is now closed overnight to Biz jets until mid September. As SEN is the only London Airport that is open it should do very well.

I wish I had posted that latest Echo report myself. It would have stopped LTNman getting unwarranted criticism. All he did was post a newspaper article!

Anyone told SEN as it shows it as operating on Monday and being on time.

Satys Air Livery at Southend

Seen a posting that Satys Air Livery at Southend has permanently closed. Can anyone corroborate this news please?

Easyjet returns for summer 2023

https://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/202...-airport-2023/

An airport spokesman said: “easyJet flights for this summer are already on sale until end of October and for summer 2023 from March."

So what is happening this winter, does the terminal shut down or is it available for diversions?

I imagine that the passenger terminal will close for the Winter period. No passenger flight diversions are accepted at the moment anyway so no change there.

The Southend Jet Centre will presumably continue to accept diversions through the Winter. The lack of current night slots at LTN and STN has resulted in a large increase in SEN's bizjet night movements to the extent that SEN is probably using nearly all of its own night movement quota.

One of the based Horizonte B734s is operating a charter to Geneva for West Ham FC this weekend.

Why are no passenger diversion flights accepted? Are staff just employed on 3 hour shifts to cover single flights?

As I understand it that is the case although I don't know the shift pattern being worked.

'Southend Airport could be hit hard by London City Airport expansion plans'
Personally I don’t see London City as a threat but Stansted, which has permission to expand to 43m and competes for the same airlines as Southend.

Totally agree, LCY does not pose a threat to SEN, cannot see FR or anything orange flying an ILS with a 5.5 degree glide path!

maybe not but if the entire Embraer E2 and Airbus A220 series get clearance for LCY, this could pose a threat with more airlines and routes becoming available

Certainly more could be possible. However, LCY's terminal is not particularly large... and in 2019, even after the gate expansion a few years ago, was already significantly stretched at times.
