There used to be a train from Gatwick to Southampton ... possibly with a change in Portsmouth

Fly to either Heathrow or Gatwick - British Airways has some good prices at the moment.  Then catch the coach direct to Southampton where it stops outside the newly built shopping centre.  If you fly to Gatwick the coach goes up to Heathrow and then down to Southampton which takes an age.  Of course you can catch the train from Gatwick to Clapham Junction, change, and back down that way but South West Trains are not the most reliable, especially at weekends.  I have been stranded at Basingstoke, Reading and Woking in the past and recommend the coach service.

You can fly to Southampton via Paris CDG or Amsterdam, but it would probably be simpler (and more cost effective, if that is an issue to you, and I suspect it isn't as you are talking about charters)  to fly to Gatwick from where you can get a direct train to Southampton.
