The transformation of Gatwick is well underway...but there's much more to come. We want Gatwick to become the airport of choice, not only in London but in Europe, delivering world class service to our passengers.
Gatwick is already the world's most efficient single runway airport.
Since new ownership, late in 2009 passenger numbers have grown by over six million. We now have over 40 million people choosing Gatwick, and we're on our way to reaching full capapcity, years ahead of predictions.
Under new ownership, we invested over £1 billion in the first five years with a further £1 billion being invested in the next. Gatwick is now unrecognisable from a few years ago. Our investment is focused on improving the airport experience for our passengers.
We've pioneered state-of-the-art security at our South Terminal, as well as introducing dedicated lanes for families or passengers needing special assistance. We extended the North Terminal, replaced the inter-terminal shuttle service and revolutionised the shopping and eating experience at the airport - to name but a few. Our plans for the next five will focus on our North Terminal, transforming the terminal and allowing us to create a strategy for growth over the next few years.
