easyJet has announced it will relaunch its route from London Southend to Amsterdam which last operated in March 2020.

On sale now, the route to the Netherlands adds further choice for customers in London and across the region, whether they’re looking for a short city break, travelling for business or connecting to other flights via Amsterdam Schiphol airport.

The route will operate up to four times a week from May 24, with flights departing Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday throughout this summer.

Amsterdam will be the fourth destination easyJet now serves from London Southend, alongside Malaga, Majorca and Faro. The airline has also announced additional flights to Faro, up to four times a week, highlighting the popularity of the Portuguese summer favourite in the Algarve.

The addition of the Amsterdam service and increased frequencies to Portugal means the airline will now operate up to 18 weekly departures this summer – a 30% increase compared with last summer.

John Upton, London Southend Airport’s new CEO said: “This announcement illustrates our commitment to rebuilding our fantastic airport for the future.

“I am delighted that our local passengers, alongside those living close by in East London and the East of England will once again have the chance to travel to Amsterdam using our quick, easy and modern airport.

“London Southend Airport can offer one of the shortest, fastest routes to Amsterdam; an incredible City to visit.

“Passengers will also be able to make global connections from Amsterdam Schiphol airport to onward destinations across the world. We hope that lots of people will see the benefit of a hassle-free route through London Southend to Amsterdam to connect for a long haul flight, compared to flying direct through London’s other crowded airports.”
