EasyJet has based a fourth aircraft at London Southend airport to enable it to launch new routes to Berlin, Kraków and Newquay.

The UK low-cost carrier predicts that 130,000 passengers will fly on the new services annually, increasing passenger traffic at Southend airport by almost 20%.

The new services to Berlin and Kraków began on 17 June, while the Newquay route was opened today, bringing to 14 the number of destinations EasyJet serves from Southend.

With Flybe planning to withdraw all routes from London Gatwick next year, EasyJet will, under current schedules, offer the only commercial air link between Southend and Newquay.
