26 Apr New route to France takes off as Transport Secretary visits London Southend Airport
The Secretary of State for Transport, Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, visited the ‘Best Airport in London’ today (Thursday 26 April 2018), just as a new route to France took off for the first time.
The Transport Secretary toured the recently opened, brand new Stobart Jet Centre and also visited the Control Tower and Terminal with Glyn Jones, Chief Executive Officer of Stobart Aviation (that owns London Southend Airport), Kate Willard, Head of Corporate Projects, Stobart Group and Rochford and Southend East MP James Duddridge.
The Transport Secretary’s visit came the same day that a new route to Châteauroux in the Loire Valley operated by IGAvion got underway with a traditional water arch salute.
Flights to Châteauroux now operate twice weekly (Thursday & Sunday) with tickets starting from €49 per person one way (including taxes and 12kg checked luggage), and can be booked now at www.igavion.fr
