The airport is 6km from Southampton. Facilities at the airport include 1,300 short term parking spaces, 850 long term parking spaces, post office, bureau de change, restaurants, cafeterias, bars, VIP lounge, duty free shop, newsagent, tourist help desk, car rental, taxi rank, baby/parent room and disabled facilities.
For the summer season, there may be a limited number of direct flights to Malaga and Alicante Airports. The difficulty for travellers is that the return journey will typically be a connected flight with long stopovers. Bristol or the London airports would be the alternatives for direct flights both ways.
