Having thoroughly enjoyed my time in Prague, along with Budapest and Bratislava, it was time for my trip to come to an end and so I headed back to the airport to start the journey home. With some time to spare before check-in opened I decided to make use of Prague airport's visitor’s terrace and see what it had to offer.
As part of my stay in the Hungarian capital I had intended to visit the Budapest Aviation Cultural Centre, an aviation museum located adjacent to the airport and so travelled out of the city centre to the Ferihegy district. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to check the museum’s opening times and so, having found it closed, decided to make the most of my trip to the airport and do some spotting.
London’s Heathrow Airport, the busiest in the UK, and before Covid-19, one of the busiest in the world. Back when I started this blog in early 2019, an AvGeek trip to Heathrow was one of the first trips I did specifically for the blog, and on 23rd September 2020, 18 months later, I returned to the airport to try out a new AvGeek spot.
I recently had some leave from work, and with travelling abroad still not really an option, and limited opportunities within the UK, I decided to head for a morning of spotting at an airport I’ve only visited once before, Luton (LTN).
This is the third of three posts I’ve written covering our trip to The Netherlands back in February/March. The first, which you can find here, was all about our visits to two aviation museums and some of Flevoland’s oldest and highest bits of land. The second, here was all about our day in Amsterdam itself, whilst this post has a little bit of exploring the wider Netherlands but is mostly about the various spotting opportunities at Schiphol airport.
Southampton Airport (SOU) is located to the north of the city of Southampton in the town of Eastleigh. With the site’s aviation history starting in 1910, there has been over a century of flying from what is now the largest airport serving the central south coast. The airport handled just under 2 million customers in 2017/18 and in 2019 was ranked third out of 30 UK airports for customer satisfaction by Which?
