Commenting on Gatwick’s traffic report for July, Nick Dunn, Chief Financial Officer at Gatwick Airport said: “We saw only a marginal drop in passenger traffic in July compared to last year. This is in line with industry expectations where fewer Britons were predicted to travel abroad in favour of staying at home to soak up the Games. "It is also good to report another month of strong performance by our new carriers serving important high growth economies. They have helped boost growth to the Asian market by 9.2%”

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 more than 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.
