Benefits and rewards

Your payslip is only part of the package if you work for Gatwick Airport

We offer a really competitive benefits package at Gatwick. We have to do that to keep and attract great people! As well as the basic benefits you'd expect from a company like Gatwick, such as a good pension and salary, you can also get discounted bus and train tickets or free on-site parking.

We can offer you some unique opportunities that are hard to come by working for other companies. So, if you ever fancied driving a snow plough on the runway or getting actively involved in local community projects, then look no further.

Your salary

We regularly benchmark our salaries to make sure we stay competitive and retain our best people. 


Your bonus is a reflection of how well we’re doing as a company and how well you’re doing as an individual or as part of a team.


We operate a defined contribution pension scheme, operated by Fidelity. You'll be automatically enrolled onto the scheme on the date you start work.  Where our employees contribute to the fund, the company also makes a contribution. Pension contributions are made via SMART (salary sacrifice) route, enabling further employee savings.

Annual leave

We have a generous leave allowance starting at 24 days plus bank holidays.

Employee Assistance Programme

Our employee assistance programme provides access to a range of professionals 24 hours a day 365 days a year.


You will have the opportunity to participate in private healthcare schemes.

Holiday parking

If you fly from Gatwick you can use our long term car parks free of charge.

We have an exclusive employee discounts scheme.


You can save up to 43% on normal bus tickets with a Gatwick Travelcard. You can also save 25% off many train fares with the Gatwick staff discount card. Both of these are available to everyone working at the airport.
