Southampton Airport’s Draft Master Plan 2037
The draft Master Plan sets out the vision and potential growth path for the airport over the next 20 years, including key developments and the associated land use plans.
The plan highlights the airport’s positive ambition as a key transport and economic asset, supporting our region’s strategy of building upon its strength in marine, advanced manufacturing, further education and tourism.
The Master Plan proposals include the development of a runway starter extension, the expansion of aviation facilities including the existing terminal which is located adjacent to the excellent rail and road connections.
