Gatwick CEO, Stewart Wingate, joined easyJet CEO, Carolyn McCall, last week to welcome members of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) to ‘The London Gatwick Experience’ on the same day that the airport announced its moving annual passenger total now stands at 36.5m – a record for Gatwick, and a single runway airport. Visitors were able to see the transformation of the airport and hear plans for the future.
Mr Wingate was in a bullish mood. “One in five passengers using the airport are now travelling on business. The airport has invested more than £1bn in the past four years transforming its facilities and has focused on enhancing the experience of specific traveller groups – particularly business passengers.”
easyJet, the UK and Gatwick’s largest airline, carried 12m business travellers last year – a 44% increase since 2010.
Carolyn McCall said: "Our research has shown that 95% of business passengers sampling easyJet for the first time say they will fly with us again. Gatwick Airport has been a real driver of this increase and more than two million business travellers fly with us to and from the airport each year and that number has increased by 9% in the last year alone." www.gatwickairport.com www.easyjet.com
