I agree that we would all love to get aviation moving again. As a medical publisher I’m a frequent flyer and also involved in organising medical conferences, again this relies on groups of clinicians...

Even when flights resume, if social-distancing is still be practiced (which is highly likely), the practicalities of handling passengers will be immensely difficult. Two metres separation between...

so, so sorry to hear this - it's truly awful. I'm sure that unfortunately a similar situation will happen at many of our regional airports. I'm just a passenger (mainly at SOU), so for me it's just...

With the way the situation is developing, I think the sensible approach for UK airports over the next few months is going to be a mixture of consolidation and temporary closure.

A terrible time for SOU, but let’s look at today’s positives. We have the new Teeside services commencing next week, and over the next few weeks services will recommence multiple times daily to...

A devastating blow for SOU, but I believe the airport will bounce back. It’s worth remembering that the financial problems lay with Flybe, not with most of the routes from Southampton. The ‘core...

The demise of Flybe would be an enormous blow to SOU, but I think it would recover relatively quickly. Many of the routes are very well used, with one or two being amongst Flybe’s most profitable....

Time to refocus?

As I have mentioned several times on this forum, SOU is very different to most other regional airports - as I have previously expressed, it's more of a 'local London City', catering very well for...

Thank you for such a comprehensive update. It once again shows just how well SOU caters for its core market, and despite the ‘doom mongers’ constant pessimism, Southampton is able to sustain a...

Thanks Sharklet 321, I totally agree a small operation by BA Cityflyer - a mix of a few 'business capitals' plus some sun/leisure routes at the weekend would be ideal, and this is exactly the sort of...

I really don’t know why so many people on the forum are so keen to see SOU develop into just another regional airport. As I have mentioned before, SOU is very, very different from most other...

I live four miles NE of SOU and mid-morning wind gusts here were force 10, causing widespread damage to trees - including the tree in my garden! Force 10 is 52 knots and the absolute maximum...

I think SOU does still have a very viable future, but Southampton is completely different from the majority of regional airports. In fact, half the problem is the location, being just 58 miles by...

The idea of BA Cityflyer taking over the complete Flybe network, even with some trimming, is I think a non-starter. However, if they were to just concentrate on the very core routes from just two or...

A lot of doom around this morning. Yes, I think we will shortly see the end of Flybe as we know it, but the airport will continue - don't forget there was no such thing as Flybe when the present...

I think that any plans to discontinue flying at Bournemouth would be a huge mistake. I am generally a supporter of SOU, as this is my nearest and most convenient airport.

However, the Eastleigh...

Southampton - Newquay

Although there probably wouldn't be a huge demand, by road, Southampton - Newquay is only 28 miles less than Southampton to Manchester!
