Gatwick’s merry go round

The airline merry go round at Gatwick is likely to take place in January following the airport's recent discussions with all parties involved. 

British Airways will move from the North to the South Terminal, with easyJet consolidating all its flights within the North Terminal, and Virgin Atlantic switching from the South to the North Terminal.

Work has been progressing at a pace with the possibility of the changes taking place before the end of the year.  However there was a risk that with very busy Christmas holiday period coming up the news may not have reached less regular travellers, with the possibility of some very unhappy holidaymakers, and staff overwhelmed at a very, very busy period.

BTN  has learnt that the move, with easyJet the biggest beneficiary, is now fixed for the last week of January 2017. 

BA closed its lounge at the North Terminal in January to allow for construction work on Virgin's forthcoming all new Clubhouse at the terminal.  Eligible BA passengers currently have access to the No. 1 Traveller lounge at the North Terminal.   www.gatwickairport.com
