Commenting on Gatwick Airport’s strong traffic performance in June, Nick Dunn, the airport’s Chief Financial Officer said: “A four per cent growth in passenger numbers for June starts the summer season on a good note. More important however are the year-on-year increases in average load factors that we are seeing at Gatwick. As we look to achieve sustainable growth from our single runway over the next decade and grow our passenger numbers by a third it is critical that we remain focused on operating our airfield efficiently. Flying fuller planes will help contribute to that sustainable growth, as will adding larger planes to the aircraft mix and facilitating more plane movements per hour – all of which we are pushing hard to deliver.
“It is also good to report that our new long-haul carriers serving important high growth economies are performing well and supporting growth in the long-haul markets generally.”

About London Gatwick
Gatwick Airport is the UK’s second largest airport and the most efficient single-runway airport in the world. It serves more than 200 destinations in 90 countries for around 38 million passengers a year on short and long-haul point-to-point services. It is also a major economic driver for the South-East region, generating around 21,000 on-airport jobs and a further 10,000 jobs through related activities. The airport is 28 miles south of London with excellent public transport links, including the Gatwick Express. Gatwick Airport is owned by a group of international investment funds, of which Global Infrastructure Partners is the largest shareholder.
In its December 2013 interim report, the Airports Commission included London Gatwick and Heathrow on its shortlist of potential locations for a new runway in the UK. Expansion at Gatwick will best meet the UK’s aviation needs for the future, can provide the greatest economic boost with the least environmental impact, and a new runway can be operational by 2025.
