Southampton Airport has an Access Partnership with Guide Dogs. Passenger services staff receive regular specialist training from Guide Dogs to help them support people with visual impairments. The airport is listed on Guide Dogs’ website as an ‘Open for Business’ partner acknowledging the airport’s efforts in making the airport more accessible for people with visual impairments.
Guide and hearing dogs are the only dogs allowed in the terminal building, except for those travelling on flights. Please note that guide dogs can only travel if they are registered with the Pet Travel Scheme and if allowed by your airline and holiday destination. For further information on travelling with an assistance dog, please visit the dedicated webpage on the UK government website.
