First time travelling from Southend, as live in the North West, so usually fly from Liverpool or Manchester, but Southend Airport was fantastic. Small airport which suits me, I find Manchester far too big. The staff were friendly and very helpful and everything ran smoothly. Will definitely fly from Southend again and I will recommend this airport to family and friends.
