"Five for a Fiver" is being offered to GA again. A rather poignant phrasde in the publicity: "Don't give London Southend Airport the cold shoulder this winter. Complete circuit training and pay £5 for 5+ circuits."

Don't give us the cold shoulder like all the airlines have......

It's gonna need a lot of fivers....

It was 2x weekly this year. The 4x is an increase, plus whatever it is to be announced in the gap between arriving and returning to Faro.

It is £5 to drop someone off in a car at the airport but unlike circuit training for £5 or £6 the car is permitted to stop for up to 10 minutes. Bargain!

Could be said the future of Southend Airport appears to be touch and go.

I think that was last Friday and if true I'm sure they will have earned a lot more from location fees than they would have by being open. Gotta earn money where they can at present.

I think there is some jealousy in Bedfordshire. They cannot bear the thought of the airport being named in the end credits of a Hollywood blockbuster.

The producers wish to thank the generous cooperation of London Southend Airport and its employee.

Much knocking on here- Southend seems to be doing the best it can. There are other revenue streams - vehicle testing for example. It can't rely on air transport until there is a real chance of getting some.

I never said he did.

What he did recognise was the potential wrong direction Stobart were taking.

Lovely brownfield site, that Esken could do well from selling?

Chances of an operational airport turning a dividend to shareholders is when?

It is starting to look like Southend in 2023 will be a mirror of Southend in 2022, which is not a good place to be.

Will 2024 be the last chance saloon for the airport? With the aviation industry all but recovered Southend is still at the start of its pandemic and is on life support. All but recovered means there is still capacity at other London airports. Until that capacity disappears Southend’s role is not require unless it reinvents itself. The problem for the airport is that capacity at Luton could increase by a million for 2024. Also the recession could impact flying in 2024, as people continue to get poorer causing another downturn.
