We suggest adequate time is allowed to travel from Waterloo to Southampton Airport. If you wish to change your flight, ticket change fees plus fare difference may apply subject to your flight ticket type. If you miss your flight, this would be classified as a missed departure or 'no-show' and you would need to book another flight.

If there is weather related disruption and your flight date changes you will need to call South Western Railway on 0345 6000 650 to amend the ticket, which could be subject to a £10 administration charge per ticket.
