Ryanair to base 3 planes at new Southend Airport base

Ryanair is to open a new base at London Southend airport in April 2019, despite its concerns for United Kingdom aviation after Brexit.

One million Ryanair passengers a year are likely to pass through the airport on more than 55 flights a week, with trains running between London Liverpool Street and the terminal.

Ryanair is due to start 13 new routes to eight countries, including Dublin, Alicante, Barcelona Reus, Bilbao, Brest, Corfu, Cluj, Faro, Kosice, Malaga, Milan Bergamo, Palma and Venice in April.

Ryanair will close its Glasgow base at the end of the summer, and demand for flights to the United Kingdom and Europe is reportedly flat this year.

Southend will be the fourteenth base for the low-priced airline and "create 750 jobs", according to research.

Ryanair has been vocal in its criticism of Britain's plans to leave the European Union and the possible effects on the industry, and has said it would "pivot growth away" from the UK.

Ryanair will begin operating flights from London Southend Airport next year, it has announced.

He said Ryanair was only expecting to grow its United Kingdom business by 4% compared with 21% in Germany in 2018.

The airport is owned by the Stobart Group.

The Irish carrier will operate out of the Essex airport for the first time from the summer of 2019. "I hope to see that lasting for many years to come".
