Southampton airport has almost doubled its check-in desks and baggage handling capacity in order to tackle queues.
Following an investment of more than £3 million, departures now has three new check-in desks.
In addition, airline Flybe has installed 10 self-service check-in kiosks. Passengers short of time will be able to access two of these in the short stay airport car park before they reach the terminal.
The airport has also upgraded its baggage handling system so that the number of bags processed every hour has nearly doubled. The new system also features the latest security technology.
Southampton airport's director of planning and development, Dave Lees, said: "The installation of 13 new check-in facilities will benefit the time-conscious passenger. This, together with the baggage system developments, aims to ensure that passengers continue to experience the easy and fast service that Southampton airport is known for."
