Southampton Airport says it plans to expand its terminal in order to double the number of passengers who use it.
It says with Heathrow and Gatwick filling up fast it is natural for the south coast airport to grow.
The news comes as the airport reveals it is now being used by a record 2 million passengers a year.
It says it will announce its full expansion plans later in the year, with no current plans for another runway.
