London Gatwick Airport records busiest month in its history

London Gatwick Airport has recorded the busiest single month in its 80-year history as 4.6m passengers traveled through the airport in July 2016, a 6.9% increase on the same month last year.

Long-haul routes continued to grow at the airport, with a 23% increase over July 2015. North Atlantic routes grew by an average of 49.9% with Toronto routes growing by 106.4%, Calgary routes by 120.8% and Vancouver routes by 85.4% for the same period. All three are new destinations served by airline operator WestJet as part of its 28 weekly flights to destinations in Canada from London Gatwick. Other popular Atlantic destinations include Los Angeles (+41%), Puerto Vallarta Mexico (+29%) and Orlando (+11%).

To celebrate this landmark in the airport’s history, Gatwick has released a collection of new aerial imagery from renowned New York photographer Jeffrey Milstein, providing a brand new aerial perspective on the airport.

Gatwick Airport, CEO, Stewart Wingate, said, “Gatwick’s continued long-haul growth, +23% year-on-year, and strong cargo growth, are the latest proof that competition in the London airports’ market is working. Our continued success provides proof of the benefits a two runway Gatwick would deliver for Britain. Expansion of Gatwick, London’s fastest-growing long-haul gateway, would show London is open for business to the world.

“As the 41.7million passengers flying with us in the last year have seen, London Gatwick is undergoing a massive transformation. The brand-new images we have revealed today provide a unique aerial perspective on the world’s most-efficient single runway airport, which is also in the premier league of airports with more than 50 long-haul routes.”
