Stobart Aviation CEO Glyn Jones commented: “There’s a correlation showing travel demand is driven by airline capacity. We’ve added hundreds of extra flights… But what is helping London Southend Airport go from strength to strength is our promise to deliver a better way to travel – more comfort, faster access, fewer queues and a friendlier experience than larger airports in the South East”.
