London Southend has been named as passengers’ favourite airport in the United Kingdom.

The honour comes a recent survey conducted by consumer travel group Which?; the regional facility topped out all other UK gateways with a satisfaction score of more than 84 per cent, earning it a five-star ranking in half of all categories.

Other airports earning high rankings included Humberside, London City, and Doncaster Robin Hood airport.

Each facility was rated in 10 different categories including airport environment, food options, check-in, passport/border controls, toilets, facilities and design.

David Lister, Southend’s director of airport operations, said in a statement that the ranking was “wonderful news” for the airport and that it was a testament to the facility’s hard-working personnel. He went on to add that those choosing to travel via Southend can enjoy perks such as security queues of four minutes or less as well as train service to central London every 15 minutes.

Southend has seen more than £100 million in upgrades over the past five years and construction is currently underway on a new rail station and terminal building.
