London Southend Airport is supporting the Southend Airshow and Military festival in a wide range of ways including air traffic control and overnight storage of aircraft.. London Southend Airport, which has recently been rated the number one airport in the UK by Which? magazine, joins BTMK, Goldwyn’s Chartered Accountants, Billericay IT Solutions and Candi Entertainment as businesses which are all offering a range of services free of charge or heavily discounted.
David Lister Operations Director of London Southend Airport had this to say on the announcement:
“London Southend Airport is pleased to be able to play a supporting role in bringing back the annual airshow to the town. The Southend Airshow is a hugely popular attraction, drawing large groups of visitors to our corner of Essex over many years. We are very happy to assist in what ways we are able alongside our day to day operations in getting this much loved event flying once again.”
On the announcement John Delaney had this to say:
“I am delighted with the involvement and support from London Southend Airport to see the Airshow continue. London Southend Airport (Rochford Aerodrome back then) was home to 37 Squadron “A” Flight in WWI so with 2014 being the 100th anniversary of WWI it is very fitting they should be so involved with our event in 2014 to commemorate it.“
Thomas Curtis added:
“We are looking forward to bringing both Southend Airshow & Military Festival and Southend-On-Sea to an international audience and London Southend Airport is key to that plan. We could not be more pleased to have London Southend Airport on board; they are very excited to support Southend Airshow & Military Festival with a range of discounts that will save the event thousands of pounds. ”
