We have the largest European short haul network in the UK. This means that you can offer your customers extensive UK and European connections. In fact, we have more domestic connections than either Heathrow or Stansted.
Around 1 in 5 passengers now travel through Gatwick on business and the airport now serves 46 of the 50 top business destinations in Europe. Among the fastest growing European destinations from Gatwick in 2014 were the business centres of Copenhagen, along with Paris and Brussels which were boosted by the launch of new services in 2014.
