London Southend Airport or Southend Airport is a regional airport in the district of Rochford within Essex, England.

During the 1960s, Southend was the third-busiest airport in the United Kingdom. It remained London's third-busiest airport in terms of passengers handled until the end of the 1970s, when the role of "London's third airport" passed to Stansted. Following its purchase by the Stobart Group in 2008, there has been an ongoing programme of development, and EasyJet is to start operating services and open a base at Southend in April 2012. The airport operators hope to increase passenger numbers to two million per year by 2020.
