London Southend Airport, 22 February 2012 – London Southend Airport played host to a glitzy party last night to celebrate the completion of its all-new ‘Fly Through’ terminal building.
Stars including Essex girl Stacey Solomon and The Only Way Is Essex cast member James ‘Arg’ Argent and Chloe Sims, as well as Eurovision finalists Scooch and others joined airport owner Stobart Group’s CEO Andrew Tinkler, COO William Stobart and London Southend Airport managing director Alastair Welch in hosting the party.
The terminal opens to the public from the 28th of February when Aer Arann flights to and from Waterford start using the new facility for the first time. From the 2nd of April easyJet’s schedule of 70 flights a week starts from London Southend to Amsterdam, Alicante, Barcelona, Belfast, Faro, Ibiza, Jersey, Malaga and Mallorca.
