I was at the opening party for the Stobart Jet Centre at London Southend Airport last night.
The company has done an impressive job with its lounge which is a world away from the sterile (but architecturally impressive) Signature Flight Support terminal at Luton which I reviewed here.
The design features, for example, include a bound copy of the most editions of the Manchester Evening News from 1896:
I first visited Southend Airport last year for an article (here) which I thought might end up being jokey, but I ended up being very impressed by the set up.
The airport is 53 minutes by train from Liverpool Street which means that I can get there from my desk in the HFP office at Moorgate in around 70 minutes, including buying a train ticket.
If you are in the small fraction of HfP readers who use private jets, either personally or corporately, I recommend taking a look at the Stobart Jet Centre. I liked it. Thanks to Glyn and Stephen for the invite.
