London Gatwick serves 40 million passengers a year for first time

London Gatwick Airport has served more than 40 million passengers a year for the first time in its history.

The airport has been helped by 32 consecutive months of growth and also recorded its busiest ever October in 2015, with more than 3.6 million passengers passing through its terminals. This represented a 7.8% increase over the same month the previous year.

Stewart Wingate, CEO for London Gatwick, said, “To reach 40 million passengers a year is a tremendous achievement and sets a global benchmark for a single runway airport. We have grown rapidly under new ownership and the benefits of competition are clear for passengers – more choice, higher standards and lower fares. It will not be long however before we are full. That is why Gatwick needs a second runway. 

“We have reached this milestone 10 years ahead of the Airport Commission’s prediction that we would do so in 2024. The Commission’s Report has unraveled in recent months and we now know beyond doubt that there is a fundamental error at the heart of the report.”
