A London Southend Airport customer survey has revealed 90% of people using the airport since the end of lockdown rated its safety measures as ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’.
Investment has been made into new security equipment, bio-shields, extensive information provision and hand sanitiser every 20 paces. Example passenger quotes included,
‘Literally the best I’ve seen. 20/10!!!!!!’
‘Actually makes it a more relaxing experience!’
Of those completing the survey the majority were solo travellers at 35.7% followed by groups of three or more and couples. A combined total of 70% of people were travelling on holidays and visiting friends and family abroad.
Glyn Jones, CEO London Southend Airport, “We are very pleased with the results, to receive such positive feedback during this challenging and uncertain time is a tribute to the team which has worked tirelessly so this is a real boost”.
“Safety is our number one priority and travel in a COVID world requires careful consideration and measures to protect passengers, employees and the community. The new Wideroe route is testament to our operations and we look forward to welcoming more passengers and receiving further feedback”.
