Our dedicated security teams are here to help you. Travelling through Southampton Airport should be easy, fast and friendly. We strive to achieve an average security wait time of less than 5 minutes whilst treating you politely and with respect to ensure that you have a positive experience.
We also very much appreciate that undergoing security screening can be frustrating and complicated to some passengers and also that the screening methods you undergo may vary slightly from airport to airport. This is not unintentional because it has been determined that screening methods deployed are most effective if they remain unpredictable and random.
