Southend airport offers free flights to stricken Ryanair passengers

Ryanair passengers facing cancelled flights at Stansted due to the airline’s crew rota chaos are being offered free travel from Southend airport.

A total of 100 tickets to Dublin, Glasgow and Manchester will be available on a first come, first served basis until Friday with travel available between October 29 and December 20.

They will apply on new domestic routes being started by Flybe franchise carrier Stobart Air – sister airline to the owner of Southend airport.

Glyn Jones, chief executive of airport parent company Stobart Aviation, said: “The free return tickets is a simple gesture, an invitation if you like, to try us instead of the airports hit by the Ryanair cancellations.

“Tens of thousands of people will have had their holiday plans disrupted and clearly feel they’ve been left in limbo not knowing if they are travelling or not, or can even be sure their inbound flight won’t be cancelled.”
