X FACTOR star and Essex sweetheart Stacey Solomon was in full flight at the launch of Southend Airport’s new terminal.

The singer entertained a gala dinner I attended, smack bang in the middle of the departure lounge.

easyJet ( will be the largest airline to fly from the swish new international terminal when they launch to mainland Spain and Portugal and the islands of Ibiza, Majorca and Jersey from April 2.

Aer Arann ( began flying from the airport to Ireland last year.

The ultra-modern steel and glass terminal - with a cafe, shop and business lounge - is impressive, directly opposite the train station with regular services from London Liverpool Street (53 mins) and Stratford and the Olympic Park (44 mins).

And bosses Stobart Air reckon state-of-the-art security will mean no passenger will have to queue for more than four minutes!

The airport is keen to cash in on the Olympics and an airport hotel – the four-star Holiday Inn with 129 rooms – opens in July just before the Games.
