"London Southend"?! You must be havin a larf. It's just Southend (or "Sarfend"), claiming it legitimately serves London is like saying PHL serves the five boroughs of NYC.
I would disagree...
It is not that much further than any of the main international airports for London... Times taken from the AA
Heathrow Airport (T4) Central London 47 Minutes
London Gatwick Airport - Central London 1 hour 8 Minutes
London Luton Airport - Central London 1 hour 12 Minutes
London Stansted Airport - Central London 1 hour 12 Minutes
London Southend Airport - Central London 1 hour 25 Minutes
London Manston Airport - Central London 2 Hours 5 Minutes
As for New York, it has taken me 1 1/2 hours to get from the airport to the city from JFK
before... and it's a journey of atleast 50 minutes!
My mother used to be a FA
based out of SEN
and they had an extremely diverse timetable from there. JAT, KLM, Air France, British Midland + a few others had routes out of SEN
