New jobs expected with Southampton airport expansion.


100’s of new jobs could be created thanks to plans to lengthen Southampton airport’s runway by 450ft in a £5m upgrade just announced.

Passenger numbers are expected to climb from 1.7 million to 2.5 million a year over the next decade and airport bosses say their workforce will need to go up from a thousand to 2,000 to help cater for the demand.

This does not mean that larger aircraft will be able to use the airport, but it will mean that planes can carry more fuel which means destination further away.

Lavinia Newman, founder of ABDS comments:
“The news comes as the airport unveiled a five per cent increase in passenger numbers in February, when more than 105,805 passengers passed through the terminal in just 28 days. Massive growth is expected in coming years, with Southampton’s cruise industry blossoming and with the airport’s fast rail links to London. Great news for the area.”
