Airline operator Flybe has revealed that it is cutting up to 300 posts across the UK.
The company confirmed that some jobs will go at Southampton airport but added those losses would be in the "low teens".
Consultation will now take place with 250 staff at the Hampshire operation.
Around 300 jobs are to go at Exeter based airline Flybe.
The company is trying to cut costs by £35 million as passenger revenues fall and fuel prices increase. Chief financial officer, Andrew Knuckey, said economic pressures meant there was "no choice" but to cut jobs.
The airline's call centre was outsourced last month and they're considering outsourcing more parts of the business such as onboard catering.
The biggest airline operating out of Southampton Airport has announced 300 job losses. Flybe will be making the cuts as part of an effort to save £35 million.
