Gatwick is undergoing the biggest transformation in its history.

North terminal forecourt

We want Gatwick to become the airport of choice, not only in London but in Europe, delivering world class service to our passengers.

Much of this transformation is being delivered through our £1 billion capital investment programme. Our aim is to be a bright contemporary airport that provides a smooth journey for everyone, and is flexible enough to deal with a growing business.

We've created a visual website with video, images and narrative to tell the story of our development plans.

The story so far

We have made great progress delivering our investment programme. The benefits our passengers already enjoy are:

  • a quick and convenient connection on our improved shuttle
  • quick and easy access into North Terminal through our new interchange which includes a new forecourt, shuttle station, lifts and escalators
  • a stunning extension to North Terminal, including new check-in zones and a new baggage reclaim area
  • easier access into South Terminal with a large new entrance and improvements to the forecourts
  • a lighter, brighter and less cluttered feel to the check-in and arrivals areas, with new flooring throughout
  • a completely new experience of security with our new security area in South Terminal, with dedicated facilities for families, those needing assistance, and for premium passengers
  • improvements to the departure lounges in both terminals, with new brands and better facilities
  • in South Terminal arrivals we’ve improved the facilities at passport control, with a lighter, brighter area and a better layout.

Things might be busy for a while

We still have many improvements either in progress or planned so you’re likely to see a few construction hoardings – but we’ll do our best to minimise disruption.

Our previous £1.2 billion investment programme completed in March 2014. But that’s not the end of the story.  We have been talking to our airline partners about their future needs, and we intend to go from strength to strength.
