A new route from Southend to Bern will be taking off twice daily from October 27.


The SkyWork Airlines service is scheduled to easily allow business and leisure travellers to make a swift and hassle free day – or longer trip to the capital city of Switzerland.

Flights will depart Southend daily at 08:15 for a 10:55 arrival in Bern, with the return flight taking off from Bern at 18.40, arriving back in Essex at 19.30.

Southend airport's railway station is 100 paces from the terminal building with up to eight trains per hour direct to London Liverpool Street in 53 minutes. The airport also promises its customers that they will wait for a maximum of four minutes to go through security, and those arriving with hand-luggage only can expect to travel from plane to train in just 15 minutes of the aircraft doors opening (30 minutes maximum if collecting luggage).

The airport's managing director, Roger Clements, said “We are delighted that SkyWork has taken the decision to move its operations from CityAirport to Southend. It is the unique customer service commitments that only we offer, along with unrivalled onward transport links, which have led to this move. We look forward to working with SkyWork and hope they are the first of many new partners we will be welcoming.”
