Current projects

It is an exciting time for the airport, as we continue to focus on the future. 

Work to improve both the infrastructure, technology and airport processes spans all parts of the passenger journey from car parking, check-in, security, retail and food outlets, gates, the airfield and runway and arrivals. We are currently delivering seven programmes focused on enhancing and developing our airport for the future, delivering brand new facilities to improve customer experience and airline satisfaction and ultimately, enabling Gatwick to achieve its strategic ambitions. ​​

Each programme is led by a programme manager and is divided in to a number of projects. In turn, each of these projects are led by a project manager and delivered by integrated project teams made up of individuals from the functions and other multi-discipline teams from across the business.

Other projects

As well as the key areas above, we will be investing nearly £350m over the next five years on maintaining our existing assets - from re-surfacing the runway to replacing boilers and renewing seating and carpets. 

Sustainability is another important consideration for the airport. We will be investing in infrastructure to support the ground handlers  to gradually switch to electric vehicles across the whole airfield. Sustainability is also at the heart of our design process and all new porjects must include energy efficient lighting as standard.

We aim to deliver every project on time, on budget and safely, with every single one contributing towards our goals of operational efficiency, on-time performance and improved passenger experience.
