Following the restart of operations out of London Southend back in March, it appears that easyJet plans to operate flights to Paris CDG in the Winter.
This route was last served in April 2020, but the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic wiped this route out. The restart represents strong demand out of the region.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
London Southend to Paris Due to Return with easyJet…
As per data from AeroRoutes.com*, it looks like flights between London Southend and Paris CDG will begin on October 29 this year, and will operate four times per week.
The aircraft to be utilized will be the Airbus A320, with the services due to be reduced to twice weekly between January and February 2024.
There are different flight times for each of the flights, which can be seen on AeroRoutes itself.
With this, it is definitely good news for the Southend area.
ICYMI: The Carrier’s Restart at The Airport…
Budget airline easyJet Europe kicked off the flights with the first flight arriving from Malaga 38 minutes late at 09:28 am (BST), due to French ATC strikes.
OE-IJO was the aircraft operating flight U27007/U27008 and made a swift turnaround before heading out back to Malaga at 10:25 am (BST).
To celebrate the restart of flights, Southend set up what was known as the “Selfie Snug” where passengers could sit down with a “Malaga” sign and get their photograph taken before jetting off for some Spring sun.
In addition, the airport’s CEO, John Upton was there to greet passengers as they flew off on the first flight.
John also praised the relaunch flights saying: “On behalf of myself and the incredible team at London Southend, it is with great pleasure that we are once again able to do what we do best and serve our passengers, alongside our airline partner easyJet”
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager also commented on the relaunch of flights saying: “We are delighted to be flying once again from Southend Airport this summer, providing customers with convenient direct connections to explore or relax in some of Europe’s most popular beach destinations”.
