Accessibility statement

Southampton International Airport is committed to meeting the requirements of the Equality Act and makes every effort to ensure all its communications, including this website, are accessible to people with special needs, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments.

However, If as a person with a disability, you encounter difficulties, please get in touch with us and make us aware of the issue.

Standards compliance and validation

We strive to make this website adhere to the level A guidelines of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. In many places the site will also adhere to elements of the AA and AAA guidelines. 

Navigation and navigation aids

The primary site navigation is located at the top of each page.

The secondary navigation elements are displayed directly beneath the primary navigation and change depending on which primary tab is selected or hovered upon.

A link to the home page is available on each page through the Southampton Airport logo.

Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists and styled with CSS.

Many links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail.

Links are written so as to make sense out of context.

Link text is never duplicated. Two links on the same page with the same text always point to the same address.

Some links, mostly to external sites, open a new browser window. There will always be a warning in either the text or the 'title' attribute of the link.

When the site is viewed in a text-only browser, the 'skip to content' link becomes visible at the top of each page.

Forms have their labels explicitly associated with their controls, aiding users of certain screen readers and speech browsers.

External site links

Our accessibility statement applies to the core www.southamptonairport.com website. We cannot guarantee the accessibility performance of other partner sites we link to for parking and travel services.
