Welcome to the unofficial Southend Airport website!
Southend Airport (IATA: SEN, ICAO: EGMC) is a small airport in the south east, in the county of Essex. It mainly operates charter and business flights, and offers maintenance services for the aircraft used for passenger services at larger airports.
Now known as London Southend Airport because of its proximity to London. A frequent train service runs from Rochford Station to London (Liverpool Street) and buses and taxis are readily available outside the existing terminal.
The airport has planning consent to build a new terminal and railway station on the eastern boundary of the airport, which will provide an integrated transport interchange. It is hoped that this will be built and operational in 2008.
The only regular air service is a scheduled flight to Jersey on summer Saturdays. Aircraft can be chartered from based airlines Flightline and Fly Now Air Charter.
There is much activity at the airport from business aircraft, pilot training in both aircraft and helicopters, recreational flying, etc. The airport employs over 1000 people in companies based on the airport, mostly concerned with the maintenance and re-spraying of airliners, and associated companies. An annual seafront airshow results in many aircraft being temporarily based at the airport for the duration of the displays
