Ryanair is to open a new base at London Southend airport in April 2019, despite its concerns for United Kingdom aviation after Brexit. From next summer, it will operate 13 routes to eight countries, with services to destinations including Dublin, Faro, Bilbao, Alicante, Corfu, Malaga and Venice.

Ryanair is opening a new base in Britain - in an apparent U-turn after warning that Brexit would be a disaster for the United Kingdom and the country's airline industry.

One million Ryanair passengers a year are likely to pass through the airport on more than 55 flights a week, with trains running between London Liverpool Street and the terminal. Stobart also operates some franchised routes for United Kingdom carrier Flybe.

"This news will help us achieve that aim, and Ryanair will be a valuable partner to Stobart Group in developing London Southend airport and allowing us to play a key role in solving London's capacity crisis", the CEO added. "I hope to see that lasting for many years to come".

Its rapid expansion is set to continue, according to the chief executive of its owners, the Stobart Group.

The Irish airline expects to carry around a million passengers a year from the Essex airport, largely to Spain and Italy. In recent weeks he has demanded chairman Iain Ferguson steps down.
