The airline company low cost easyJet will relaunch in December a link between London-Southend And Genevathree years after suspending it due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
From December 16, 2023 to March 30, 2024, the British low-cost flight specialist will offer three flights a week between its base in London-Southend and the one at Geneva-Cointrin, operated in Airbus single-aisle aircraft. Departures are scheduled for Wednesday at 2:05 p.m. (arrival at 4:40 p.m.) and Saturday at 11:15 a.m. and 7:55 p.m. (arrival at 1:50 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. respectively); “return” flights will leave Switzerland on Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. (arrival at 1:35 p.m.) and Saturday at 9:55 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. (arrival at 10:30 a.m. and 7:20 p.m.).
EasyJet has no direct competition on this line initially launched in 2012, which is added to those between Geneva and Gatwick or Luton (against British Airways, SWISS, Jet2.com or TUI Airways).
Having relaunched its Southend base in May 2022, about sixty kilometers east of the capital, with only three routes to Faro, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca, easyJet has already added connections to Amsterdam at the end of May, and to Paris-CDG at the end of October. It remains the only company present in Southend.
