Gatwick reopens *

Closed since June 2020 the South Terminal at Gatwick is to re-open.

Sunday 27 March is the date, which coincides with the change by many airlines to the summer schedules.

Airlines who will be operating from the South Terminal include: Air Baltic, Air Europa, Aer Lingus, Air Malta, Aurigny, British Airways, Enter Air, Eastern Airways, Norwegian, Ryanair, Turkish Airlines, TAP, Vueling and Wizz.  EasyJet will operate across both South and North Terminals.
Stewart Wingate, Chief Executive Officer, Gatwick Airport said: “After an incredibly challenging two years for the airport, our partners, local communities and the entire aviation industry, we are delighted to be reopening our South Terminal next month.

“Following some major announcements from our airlines about significantly increased flying schedules, and from Government on removing travel restrictions and airport slot regulations, we can now look forward to once again operating a busy Gatwick this summer and beyond.

“Today’s news means Gatwick and our partners can also begin recruiting new staff to help us meet this demand, which is excellent news for local people who have been so badly impacted by the effects of the pandemic.

Great to see BA back properly at Gatwick but can we have an economy class service more like CityFlyer than that offered from Heathrow.

Congratulations to Mr Wingate in the re-opening of Gatwick. He could have done it earlier but I can understand the logic with BA returning. But please get a New York service. Norwegian always seemed to be busy and up front was OK.
