London Southend Airport

London Southend Airport (IATA: SEN, ICAO: EGMC) is an international airport in the district of Rochford within Essex, England, and is one of the six main airports serving London - alongside Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and City airports.

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, and EasyJet started operating services by opening a base at Southend in April 2012. A regular rail service runs from Southend Airport Station to London Liverpool Street Station in central London. The airport operators hope to increase passenger numbers to two million per year by 2020.
