Easyjet to launch London Southend to Tenerife route

25 Sep 2013 by GrahamSmith

Easyjet is launching a route between London Southend airport and Tenerife in December.

The budget carrier expects the twice-weekly service to carry more than 11,000 passengers per year.

It is scheduled to begin on December 13.

Hugh Aitken, Easyjet's UK commercial manager, said: "We're absolutely delighted to be launching our 16th destination from London Southend to Tenerife.

"We have doubled the number of easy and affordable destinations available from London Southend since we launched at the airport in April 2012 to ensure that there really is an ideal destination for everyone whether travelling on business or for leisure, all year round."

The news comes three months after Easyjet announced its expansion at London Southend by adding a fourth aircraft to the base and three new routes to Newquay, Berlin and Krakow.

Earlier this month, the airline cancelled Southend to Belfast service with effect from January (see news, September 10).
