Gatwick update

Now clearly established as the world’s busiest international single runway operator Gatwick is pressing on with its campaign for the government not to proceed with Sir Howard Davies Airports Commission recommendation.   

In July 4.3m passengers passed through the airport, +6.4% on the previous year.  40,000 were Emirates passengers, the airline announcing that all three daily services would be by A380 for the start of 2016. 

CEO Stewart Wingate said: “These results put us 10 years ahead of the forecasts used by the Airports Commission to predict future air traffic movements and how that relates to the case for expansion.  Our growth in the last 12 months is actually more than the Commission concluded could be added at Gatwick in the first year of a new runway being operational here – this is further proof of the flaws in the Airports Commission analysis and shows its conclusions are fast unravelling.”

The North Terminal £80m Pier 5 reconfiguration is nearly complete with a new departures corridor being constructed on top of the existing pier.  Several aircraft stands and gate rooms are being reconfigured.  easyJet will be a major beneficiary when the airline completes the move of all its services towards the end of next year.  www.gatwickairport.com
