'''By rail''', a journey time of 55-65 min. Oyster cards and Travelcards are '''NOT''' valid. The airport has its own railway station "Southend Airport", and is served from Liverpool Street, via [[Stratford]] by trains 17 hours a day. Trains often run every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday (with increased frequency at weekday morning and evening peak times) and every 30 minutes on Sundays and Bank Holidays. The station is c. 200 yd from the terminal building. The line can be notable for frequent engineering work at weekends and bank holidays, so it's always best to check in advance for any disruption, to avoid missed flights.

'''By bus:''' Ensignbus provide an early morning and late evening bus service, called the Jetlink X1 from London Victoria, Grosvenor Gardens to the airport, via Embankment Station, Canning Town Station and Lakeside Shopping Centre. This provides a viable and cheaper form of public transport than a taxi and even the train, to and from London and Southend Airport late at night and early in the morning. Fares can either be purchased online or on the bus. A single fare from Southend Airport to London is around £17.50 Adult and £12 Child. The bus leaves Southend Airport at 23:40 and arrives at London Victoria at approximately 01:05. On the return journey, the bus leaves London Victoria at 03:00 and arrives back at Southend Airport at 04:30, in time for the first departures of the day at around 06:30. The X30 (Operated by First Essex Bus), provides an hourly service from Southend-On-Sea and Stansted Airport, via Southend Airport, Rayleigh Station and Chelmsford, 24 hours a day. Fares are payable to the driver on the day of travel, no need to book in advance. '''NOTE:''' The X30 only goes via Southend Airport between 05:11 and 00:10. 
 
  
 
'''By taxi:''' Taxis to and from the airport and London are very expensive and should only be used as a last resort (e.g. Missing the last train to London). Andrew's Airport Cars are based at the airport, but the service is not very good (e.g. very few taxis availible for arriving passengers) and the fares tend to be slightly more expensive than other taxi firms in the Southend-on-Sea area.
