London Southend Airport saw it's two biggest weekends ever thanks to new flights from Ryanair and Loganair.
Over 24,000 travellers used the airport between Friday July 27 and Sunday July 29, a vast 28 per cent increase when compared with the same weekend last year.
Similarly, more than 23,000 people also used the airport between Friday July 20th and Saturday July 22nd, a whopping 47 per cent increase when compared to the same weekend last year.
This brilliant sky high increase in passengers from London has been partly driven by Ryanair, who began flying from the airport in April earlier this year. Since then, the airline has added an exciting 14 new routes.
Younger travellers are particularly impressed with the growing number of routes and ease of travel, with a survey of nearly 14,000 customers between May and June this year showing that 73 per cent were between the ages 18 to 34.
