757's and 320's have used the airport in the past so it's not as if Southampton hasn't coped before but I agree that the situation isn't perfect and I the only way is up when it comes to any terminal expansion which should be a priority in the foreseeable future.

Seems like a good time to put this together. Shouldn't be many further changes now. Hopefully it is fairly accurate, if anyone has any more details on Ski charters etc let me know and I'll add them on. Looks like a pretty flat winter, with gains from easyJet and Powdair offset by Flybe reductions.

Good analyses,so with Powdair likely to implode,it seems the airport is on a downturn?
Prehaps it has reached its full potential with existing infrastructure?
Interesting times,await with batted breath on any airfield developments!

Adfly, in addition to the list above Flybe seem to be flying direct flights between ABZ and SOU on weekends throughout the winter. From what I can tell there appears to be a one-way ABZ-SOU on a Friday evening, and then a one-way SOU-ABZ on a Sunday evening. Positioning an aircraft or a crew perhaps?
Are Austrian operating charters to Innsbruck this year?

I have tried to search the Inghams website to see if they are offering flights from Southampton to Innsbruck for 2018 but found nothing even though it has Southampton listed as a departure airport on their homepage.

I have to mention that there website is terrible to navigate and I for one would easily search another operator if I was personally looking to book a ski holiday.

Looks as if the KLM flight was just for the summer. Showing as 12 weekly for most of the winter and 11 weekly in Jan/Feb (no Sat). Will add the other updates as well.

Why are Powdair likely to implode? They have just bought into Backbone Aviation who are supplying the CJ200s.

Doesn't appear to be a flight on Sat 6th Jan to Innbruck, or any other random weekend date I input. Seefeld is just up the road from INN.

Volotea

Just received this from Volotea ....

Yes, we should fly from Southampton next summer. Generally flights are scheduled approximately 6/7 months in advance. Best regards, Bruno

They seem to use a picture of a completely empty departure lounge! If only!

The 'compact' terminal is going to be difficult for some to take.

However, these are good problems to have - a full to bursting terminal in need of expansion. Much better versus the near empty departure lounges of Bournemouth Airport just 25mins down the road.

New route alert

New airline, Flylolo, have announced flights to Skiathos starting July 2018. This will be the first time that Southampton Airport has offered flights to Greece

Flylolo are just a ticketing agent and not an airline. They had a go (possibly under a different brand name) at selling flights to Greece last year but in the end had to cancel all flights.

Not sure where the 195 aircraft is coming from as the Flybe 195 is used for the Tuesday Palma service , unless they swap the planes around and use a DCH8 from July to Palma ( Flybe Schedule only up to June at the moment )

Also was wondering if it might be passenger / weight restricted as it must be the longest route from Southampton now ( 1451 miles ) especially as it leaves at 3pm in the heat of the summer months of July / Aug

The flight also lands quite late back into SOU given any ATC delays might be an issue as well ?

The Echo says its a 100 seat 195 , could be a misprint though
