We don’t normally cover easyJet route changes, but I thought it was worth flagging that the airline is bringing back a service to Paris Charles de Gaulle from Southend, starting at the end of October.
easyJet is currently the only airline operating out of Southend and it was thought that services would cease again after the summer, but it looks as if the airline is willing to commit.
It presumably helps that there is no-one flying to Paris from London Stansted, which means less competition on the route.
There will be four flights per week, departing on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
The existing easyJet routes from Southend are Amsterdam, Malaga, Majorca and Faro.
If you’ve never flown from Southend, it is remarkably easy to access from Central London with a railway station at the airport.
