Easyjet has cancelled its Belfast to Southend service with effect from January 6 next year.

The news comes a day after we reported that the budget carrier is showing confidence in the Belfast market with the launch of two new routes in summer 2014 (see news, September 9).

It would appear that the Southend route has been underperforming.

An Easyjet spokesperson told Business Traveller: "As with all our bases, Easyjet continually reviews which destinations are best served by each base.

"Belfast is a popular business route which is well served from our other London airports. We are currently accessing potential alternative new routes."
