CITY VIEWS:  WILL EASYJET’S MOVE HELP TO EASE RUNWAY CAPACITY PROBLEMS?

SEAN SMITH | AXA
“No, Southend is too far from London, there isn't very good rail linking and it is pretty hard to travel to from central London. I don't think people would want to travel that far.”

MICHAEL KING | JR CLARE
“Yes, it's not like it could make it any worse. It would help all the people living in Southend as it is fairly accessible, but it all depends on the destinations easyJet will fly to.”

IAN WHITE | LLOYD’S OF LONDON
“Yes, this makes me very happy; a lot of planes come to London airports causing so much congestion. Having the option to go to Southend will certainly hold attraction for City workers who live close to Essex.”
