Following a recently conducted review, the authorities at London Gatwick Airport have announced a plan to reorganize airline operations and limited specific airlines to single terminals in order to simplify operations as well as facilitate all passengers travelling to and from London.
The two largest carriers at Gatwick Airport, namely easyJet and British Airways are the first to announce the move, with British Airway moving operations to the South Terminal and easyJet confining to the North.
Both top-notch terminals will benefit from the ongoing, 2.2 Billion Pound investment program that the Gatwick Airport is currently undergoing with luxurious additions made to them which include, but are not limited to,:
– Increased floor space
– Brand new check in area
– Renovated arrivals and retail area
– Larger, more spacious concourse
– New layout with a highly increased check-in capacity of approximately 4350 per hour
– New departure and Premium Lounges
– Increased and improved security
– State of the art immigration gates
– New Pier 1; a brand new facility including aircraft stands, lounge and storage facilities, as well as new gate rooms
Moreover, Europe’s largest walk through Duty-Free is also currently under construction at the Gatwick Airport.
The moves, which will officially take place in November 2016, will greatly ease and enhance the overall travelling experience of passengers of both airlines as well as allow a smoother operation.
This reorganization and subsequent improvements are all set to establish the Gatwick as one of the top airports of the world.
