The new route to one of the fastest growing tourism destinations in the world got underway on Friday 19th July 2019 at 100% capacity. 144 people jetted out on the first flight.

"FLYONE launched direct flights to London as a result of our customers asking for an affordable alternative to visit their friends and families. Moreover, the convenient schedule we provide allow to plan mini-holiday for those who want to get rid of their routine, and to charge their batteries. In this regard, we appreciate our collaboration with London Southend Airport to make it possible and offer our customers a safe, comfortable and affordable flight alternative," said Mircea Maleca, General Director of FLYONE.   

Glyn Jones, CEO of Stobart Aviation, said: “London Southend is delighted to welcome FLYONE passengers to our rapidly growing airport. Already in 2019, we have expanded our route network and continued to improve the experience passengers have when they get to the airport in terms of food, drink and shopping. The addition of new early and late trains – along with up to six services an hour providing direct links to London Liverpool Street in 52 minutes - has enhanced our reputation as one of the most accessible, convenient airports to get to – so it no surprise more and more people are choosing to fly from London Southend to explore new and exciting destinations such as Moldova.”

Moldova is globally renowned for its wine – in fact the country is actually one of the largest wine producing nations on earth. A dozen superb vineyards are within a 90-minute drive of Chişinău, the wine-and-food loving capital city whose origins date back six centuries. Chişinău is a city of parks, of street festivals, and of sidewalk cafes where you can enjoy a drink and watch the world go by. The super-central location puts the entire country within a day trip. Throw in a hip and happening nightlife, and Chişinău ticks off all the boxes for an ideal weekend break.

The service on an Airbus A319 aircraft will operate twice weekly (on Tuesdays and Fridays).
