Southend Airport Facts
London Southend Airport is an international airport in the district of Rochford within Essex, England.
During the 1960s, Southend was the third-busiest airport in the United Kingdom. It remained London's third-busiest airport in terms of passengers handled until the end of the 1970s, when the role of "London's third airport" passed to Stansted. Following its purchase by Stobart Group in 2008, there has been an ongoing programme of development, with a newly built terminal and control tower, an extended runway, and a regular rail service running from Southend Airport Station to Liverpool Street Station in central London.
