easyJet launches Scottish service from Southend

Low cost carrier easyJet is launching its newest route from London Southend Airport to Edinburgh.
The inaugural flight to Edinburgh will depart on 2 May 2013 with year round flights six days a week – every day except Saturday with fares from £27.49 one way including taxes.
Hugh Aitken, easyjet’s UK Commercial Manager commented: “We’re thrilled to be announcing our first Scottish route from London Southend directly to the city of Edinburgh.
“We’re making it extremely easy and affordable to visit the city or extend the journey further afield to other parts of the Lothians and Scotland by cutting the travel time to less than half compared to a train or car journey from the region and presenting our customers with great value.
