  • Airport Council International Europe announces that Gatwick Airport is one of Europe’s fastest growing airports 
  • 2.5 million passengers travelled through the airport in January, +5.7% on previous year
  • Gatwick CEO Stewart Wingate said: “Strong growth in our European routes – coupled with the ongoing demand for more and more long haul services - has helped ensure the airport’s place among the fastest growing airports of Europe. As one of the biggest businesses in the UK, and indeed the UK’s best connected airport, we and, more importantly, our passengers have benefited from being part of a liberalised market and from the influence being in the EU provides. We firmly believe that it is in the interest of passengers, business, and the UK to stay in the European Union.”

We served 40.3 million passengers - the most from any single runway anywhere in the world.
