London’s newest airport

Since 2008, London Southend Airport has undergone extensive redevelopment. Previously to that, it had served mainly as an engineering and maintenance base for several decades. The redevelopment plan had the goal of upgrading the airport into a functional, modern, and efficient regional airport in time for the London 2012 Olympics. Improvements to the airport included an extended runway, a new air traffic control facility, and a new terminal building. A new railway station and a four-star hotel both opened near the airport. London Southend Airport has since experienced an increase in travelers, with 2013 being its busiest summer yet. Further improvements are planned.
