London Southend airport has been named as among the best in the UK.
The Essex airport picked up the award for airports handling under three million passengers a year at the Airport Operators Association annual awards.
The other winners were Glasgow airport (3-10 million passengers) and Heathrow (over 10 million passengers).
The winners of the award were decided by a survey of airline members of the Board of Airline Representatives in the UK (BAR UK) and the British Air Transport Association (BATA).
Glyn Jones, chief executive of Stobart Aviation that owns Southend airport, collected the trophy at an awards ceremony in London.
He said “Our unique ‘Simply Easier’ promise to passengers that include short walking distances, outstanding customer service, a lack of queues compared to other London airports, our own station with fast and frequent train services to the heart of London every 20-minutes, and car parks right next to the terminal, are all key factors in our success and why ever increasing numbers of passengers are repeatedly choosing London Southend airport over all the others.”
