Airport by bus

When it comes to getting you to our local airports by bus, Arriva has got it pretty well covered.

So if you're jetting off to the sun this summer, planning a European citybreak or travelling to an overseas business meeting, why build in the cost and the hassle of taking the car, finding somewhere to park and probably paying handsomely for the privilege, when you can just hop on to an Arriva bus and let us take care of you?

If you're taking off from Southend Airport, Arriva's local buses 7, 8 and 9 all call at the airport

So you can travel direct from:

  • Great Wakering (7/8)
  • Shoeburyness (9)
  • North Shoebury (7/8/9)
  • Thorpe Bay (7/8/9)
  • Southchurch (7/8)

The best ticket deal for you depends where you're catching the bus to the airport from.

Travelling on your own
  • If you can get there direct on the 7, 8 or 9 bus, just pay the driver with cash or by contactless
  • If you're changing to the 7, 8 or 9 from another Arriva bus in the Southend zone, a Day Saver ticket may well offer the best deal - £3.90 adult (online or m-ticket), £4 adult (on the bus), £2.80 child (wherever you buy it)
    Buy online, on your mobile phone or from the driver with cash or contactless
  • If you already have a valid Arriva Day, Weekly, 4-Weekly or Annual Saver ticket, you can simply use that
