Aeroitalia has cancelled its plans to launch flights to Italy from London Southend Airport.

The airline, which launched in 2022, had intended to operate six flights a week between Southend and Milan Bergamo from 25 March.

However, the Essex airport confirmed to local media that the flights had been cancelled.

A spokesperson told the Echo: “At London Southend, we’re continuing to double our traffic year on year. With our destinations growing rapidly from three to 11 over the past year with existing and prospective partners, we expect to be announcing more exciting routes very soon.

“Milan remains firmly in our plans. We naturally wish Aeroitalia well with their existing and domestic routes at this time.”

The airport has not had flights to Milan since Ryanair dropped its four-flights-a-week service in 2021.
