Our local community
Southampton Airport is committed to minimising the impact that airport operations have on its neighbours, and to running the airport responsibly. We work closely with our local community and report on a regular basis to the Southampton Airport Consultative Committee.
Recent community projects
Bitterne Park School
The airport’s strategic partnership with Bitterne Park School includes work experience opportunities for students studying travel & tourism. The airport also provides a School Governor. In September 2017 the brand new seating area and study facility that we gifted to their new building was unveiled. The airport worked with Bitterne Park over a few months to create and deliver an area which provides a flexible space that positively supports learning and is also a great place for the pupils to relax with friends.
New Engineering Apprentice
We were delighted to welcome Jordan Williamson to the airport team in September as our new Engineering Apprentice! We have recently teamed up with Eastleigh College to create an apprenticeship scheme which provides fantastic on the job training and mentoring, delivered by our dedicated and experienced engineering team. Jordan will split his time between the airport and college over the next three years, whilst he works towards attaining his Advanced Level Electro Technical qualification.
