Bloc Gatwick expansion announced

LinkedIn +

Bloc has revealed plans to add 231 bedrooms to its existing 245-bedroom hotel in the UK’s Gatwick  South Terminal, a few steps from security.

The rooftop extension will be built above the South Terminal and linked to the existing Bloc Gatwick by a passenger bridge. It will provide a mix of accommodation suitable for everyone from families to business travellers, and will feature an aluminium and glass design that makes it appear to float.

Emma Rees, head of property at Gatwick Airport, said, “Bloc’s entrance sits just a few meters from South Terminal’s Departures, so extending the hotel will provide even more of our passengers with super-fast, convenient access to our terminals. The hotel is a fantastic option for travelers with an early flight and many of the new rooms will also offer guests spectacular views of the busiest single runway in the world.”

The Bloc Gatwick extension is expected to commence operations in 2021.
