Over the next two years the Gatwick Airport terminals will receive a dramatic overhaul in order to provide a modern environment for all inbound and outbound passengers, and firmly highlight Gatwick as passengers’ airport of choice.

As part of the redevelopment, a new shuttle link opened today two months ahead of schedule, which connects the north and south Gatwick Airport terminals. Costing around £43 million, the shuttles offer extra seating and they are fully accessible to passengers with reduced mobility. A shuttle is automatically deployed every time a sensory device clocks a certain number of passengers waiting at the stations.

Some of the other main areas that will receive improvement include the south terminal departure lounge, entrance forecourts, immigration hall, baggage systems and the north terminal interchange. By improving all of these facilities, passengers will get more out of their journey through the Gatwick Airport terminals.

Gatwick has been recognised as London’s favourite airport. With just a single runway, Gatwick Airport offers flights to over 200 destinations all over the world. In fact, it’s the biggest single-use runway in the world. Gatwick has always tried to offer a service for everyone, from cheap flights to Tenerife, to long haul flights to the USA.

During the redevelopment, Gatwick Airport terminals will be open for business as usual.
