Filming & photo permits

If you would like to film or take photos at Gatwick, please complete our permit request form. The press office will come back to you within five days with your permit or to discuss why we cannot authorise your request.

Security, passenger safety, our airport operations, the views of our airlines, and resource availability are considered for every filming or photography request received. You must have public liability insurance to film or take photos at Gatwick.

While we will strive to accommodate your request, there will be times where we will not allow filming or photography.

Gatwick charges a fee for all commercial filming and photography (this excludes news media and any filming/photography being done on behalf of Gatwick’s business partners).

If your request is authorised, you will receive a permit on email. This must be shown to any member of Gatwick staff or police who request to see it while you are on site. If you do not have a permit, you will be asked to leave the airport.
