what you hear on your way to uni is most probably the same thing that has often enough made me turn my head on the way to uni... These are (usually) Air Europa's 737s (although we do get other operators' 737s from time to time). Once in a while, we also get the odd low-flying FR/EAL flight thats heading for BOH.

At one end of the runway is the M27 motorway/freeway and at the other there is a housing estate and an extensive railway development.There is no turn-off at the start of 02 or 20, aircraft have to backtrack to reach both thresh-holds. Flybe have now developed SOU into a major hub, with many business and leisure destinations, including Geneva, La Rochelles and Guernsey. BA don't actually have very many flights anymore form SOU, the vast majority of flights are operated by flybe and various other carriers. The traffic at Southampton is very seasonal, with many leisure flights to southern european holiday destinations operating in the british summer and a smaller number of mainly business destinations in the winter.

Unfortunately Flybe have dropped La Rochelle and Perpignan, likewise Prague. Geneva is a weekend only service for a few months in winter and Salzburg operates on a Saturday for a few weeks in the ski season. It apears Flybe are now concentrating on BHX and opening up new bases i.e LPL and possibly NWI. Hopefully Air Berlin will serve a few more German cities.
