Ah Another Thread about my home airport
FlyBE are starting a weekly Saturday service from JER
. Now have Planning Permission to build a new terminal, I should expect other airlines to follow FlyBE, you may even see FlyBE having a few other routes from here - I think there is a market for this area.
The ATP's are in storage, and have been for some time now.
Believe it or not, in 1988 Southend was Britains 4th buisest airport - now it is probably the 400th buisest airport
Although, we do see quiet a few rare aircraft that come here for mantainance at many of the companies that are based on the airfield.
