    One of our favourite airports. Quiet, relaxed, clean and friendly. Oddly, the only airport in the UK where they always insist rescanning our digital projector after it has been through in its bag!

    Don't expect shopping past security. There is a while smiths that will sell you travel toothpaste ( tiny half length tube) for £2.50. Duty free shop and café and bar that is it though.

    There's a taxi rank outside the main train station entrance, just a few minutes away. These are typically cheaper than Chequers, who run a monopoly on taxis from the airport.

    They've made it hard to drop people off (you have to go in the multistorey and get a ticket now). There's much to be said for pulling into the car park at Soton Airport train station instead!

    Steer clear of the miserable check in clerk! (Face like a bull dog chewing a wasp) Clearly reading how to win friends and influence people! Saved by excellent service from younger employee :D

    If you've already checked in, go straight for the shorter bag drop queue. Sounds obvious but unclear sign posting means most people with boarding passes are mistakenly in the wrong queue.

    Good little airport, well laid out and proportionate for the flights it serves, not impressed by the lack of free drop off zones (you have to pay £1 to drop people off and you have to use the car park

    Make sure you pay £5 priority queue, you won't always need it, but when you do you'll be pleased!

    Tiny airport which is really nice. So quick and easy to get through although others don't seem to find the same!

    The queue for security screening often stretches back to the arrivals bar in the morning. Allow yourself plenty of time, particularly in the summer.

    If you don't get to the currency exchange before security there is a cashpoint by the gates where you can withdraw euros or sterling

    The taxis from the station are cheaper than the ones from the airport - just cross the bridge & save.

    Most ridiculous airport security I have ever seen. Throwing away a business mans USB because it semi looked like a weapon: fair play, but I do not feel safer knowing you have my shaving cream!!

    Don't buy Quality street. Over £4 for small bag! But lovely small airport with surprising number of connections.

    Take your sandwiches from the Costa counter and buy at the bar where they are cheaper!

    Very relaxed airport. Flights always seem delayed but this seems to be due to the relaxed atmosphere.... I swear one plane waited while a woman finished her coffee :s

    Always park at the station over the road at weekends. It's a fraction of the cost.

    If only away for a day or two, park in the train station next door. It's much cheaper!

    Disappointing duty free with small expensive selection - don't bank on buying anything. At the end of duty free is WHSmiths that sell cheaper chocolate for example.

    Do not park in the area immediately outside airport, even if it's completely empty, even if it's the very last flight, cos the man there gets very cross :S

    Don't even bother looking for a space on the 1st floor of short stay car park. Just go to the 2nd floor.

    First thing in the morning keep an eye on the queue into security. One minute there is no one, the next loads of people!
