The station is very well connected with the rest of the United Kingdom's transport network: it is situated directly next to Southampton Airport and the M3 and M27 motorways, and almost all passenger services stop here.
A station opened on the site as the Atlantic Park Hostel Halt in 1929 by the Southern Railway, though later closed. In 1966, the station was built by British Rail as Southampton Airport before changing to Southampton Parkway (in 1986), with another name change in the 1990s to Southampton Airport Parkway.
Facilities available include: a ticket office; toilets; coffee shop; waiting area; first class lounge; and car parking. The station was upgraded in 2010 with a new foot bridge with lifts to improve accessibility for disabled people costing £2 million as part of a wider £7 million investment in the airport. The lifts are in use throughout the service
