Trains to Southend Airport

With its futuristic-looking footbridge traversing the purpose-built two-track line, the glittering modern marvel of Southend Airport train station opened in 2011, after 75 years' wait. It was in the 1930s, when the airport opened, that Southend's then mayor remarked the need for a railway station as well. Better late than never. Built in just 23 months, the station is Stobart Rail's biggest project to date. The company completely designed and constructed the line, discovering Iron Age fire pits and rare species of spider during construction. The station boasts an impressive turnaround time, promising to have hand-luggage-only plane passengers on the station platform a mere 15 minutes after touchdown. It's certainly doable with the station being just 100 paces from the airport terminal.
