Flying Out of Southampton

It's the eighteenth-busiest airport in the United Kingdom, and it serves over one million passengers each year. Aurigny Air Services, Blue Islands, Eastern Airways, Thomas Cook, Thompson Airways, and Flybe offer daily flights to and from Southampton Airport. Several airlines also offer seasonal flights to popular skiing areas of Switzerland and France. When you're ready to book your trip, visit the ebookers website to find flights that fit your budget.
Parking at the Airport
If you're parking your car at the airport for three days or more, you can use the airport's long-stay parking lot, which costs £11.40 per day. The parking lot isn't within walking distance of the terminal, but the airport has a courtesy shuttle bus that transports passengers between the lot and the terminal every five to ten minutes.
Transportation to the Airport
If you don't want to leave your vehicle at the airport while you travel, you can get to the airport via taxicab, train, or bus. You can make arrangements for a cab ride by calling Checker Cars at +44 (0)2380 651 110. The train ride from the centre of Southampton to the Southampton Airport Parkway Station takes approximately seven minutes. If you're taking the bus to the airport, you can purchase a ticket directly from the bus driver for £2.
Dining at the Airport
If you want to grab a bite to eat before you board your plane, the airport has dining options. You can get a cup of coffee and a quick snack at Costa Coffee. If you want a full meal, you'll find a variety of options at Mitchell's Kitchen & Bar. The brasserie-style restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and light tapas-style dishes in the evening. You can also grab a quick bite to eat in the departure lounge before your flight leaves Southampton.
Arriving in Bilbao
Fly into Spain by arriving in the Basque Country's largest city. The Bilbao Airport sits less than nine miles north-north-east of the city centre, just north of N-637. More than twenty airlines serve passengers arriving in Bilbao; you can book flights into the area aboard British Airways, Air France, and other airlines when you visit ebookers.
Leaving the Airport
Once you arrive in vibrant Bilbao, getting to the city from the airport is a quick sixteen-minute drive if you hire a rental car or take a taxi. A typical cab fare from Bilbao Airport to the city centre costs less than €20, and you can quickly compare rates for available rental cars through ebookers when you make your reservations. A less expensive travel option is to take Bizkaibus Line 3247 into the city. Buses leave the airport every thirty minutes, and a single ticket costs €1.35.
Weather in Bilbao
Pack your wet weather gear whenever you visit Bilbao, because you have about a fifty-fifty chance of encountering rain during your stay. June through September will give you the least chance of getting wet during your visit, as these months see an average of less than ten rainy days each. Temperatures are also highest during this time, with July and August seeing average high temperatures above 25°C and lows around 15°C. Temperatures are mild in Bilbao during the coldest months, and January is the only month when the average lows dip below five degrees.
Enjoying Your Trip to Bilbao
Bilbao has a wide variety of intriguing structures, ranging from the gothic St. James Cathedral to the modern Guggenheim Museum. While you are touring the city, check out the English-style gardens in Doña Casilda Iturrizar Park or explore Bilbao's old quarter, Casco Viejo, to discover quaint and unusual shops. If you visit Bilbao during the latter part of August, be sure to attend the Semana Grande festival, where you can watch street entertainers, bullfighting, and other performances.
