Renowned for its high customer care and service, its little surprise perhaps that Southampton Airport has been nominated for the prestigious ‘Awesome for Families’ award.
The award, by Family Traveller magazine, is voted for by passengers across the UK.
Many families passing through the airport this week were happy to share their views as to why they believe Southampton was ‘awesome’, including…
Catherine Howard, from Southampton, travelling to Avignon, with sons Jake and Charlie, who said, “The best thing for me is that the children can see the planes and the runway which they love. You don’t always get this at bigger airports, and also we were through to the departure lounge in 10 minutes, which was really easy. I’d always choose to come through here with kids.”
And Laura Talbot-Hole, from Midhurst, travelling to Brest, with her son Tom, who said “I like the staff, especially those at the aircraft steps who help me with my buggy”.
Tom Huelin, from Southampton, travelling to Jersey, with son Liam and daughter Ella, who said,
“I find the four hours free Wi-Fi really useful as it allows the kids to play games on the iPad whilst waiting for our flight”
The winning airport will be announced after the closing date, the 31st August.
