Loganair launch Southend Punk route to London


From Insider today:

‘Loganair to launch flights from Aberdeen, Glasgow and Stornoway to London Southend. The Essex airport owned by Stobart Group is an expanding gateway for travel to the capital. Aberdeen and Glasgow will have three direct flights each way every weekday and a selection of weekend services, operated by Loganair’s Embraer 145 regional jet aircraft. One-stop services will also be introduced from Stornoway to London on Monday to Friday, with one flying north on Sundays. The airline says it is the first direct service from the Hebrides to London.’


Trains from Southend Airport to London Liverpool Street Station take around 1 hour, run 64 times per day and cost between£5 and £18.


Stornoway to London in 2 hours?

TuS CE, Professor Robertson, has declared that he has cousins in Southend and that he is a great fan of Dr Feelgood, but denies any wish get free flights so that he can visit sacred sites for the great Essex band.

    Good to see Loganair (Scotland’s National Airline?) continuing to expand its international destinations. Does this news mean that Wilko Johnson and Norman Watt-Roy (together with any other available remaining Feelgoods or Blockheads) might arrange some concerts in venues in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Stornaway? Would be good to see the star of the rockumentary ‘Oil City Confidential’ performing in the real ‘Oil City’ – that would be a date to put in the diary.
