Gatwick Opens New Pier 1

Gatwick Airport has marked its busiest May ever by opening the new Pier 1. The biggest single investment since new ownership.

The month’s figures took Gatwick’s moving annual total passenger numbers to just over 41 million – a new world record for a single runway airport.

The Pier 1 facility which replaces the old Pier 1, houses an entirely new baggage system for the South Terminal and state-of-the-art passenger gate rooms with views across the runway.

The development hopes to improve efficiency and reduces delays both on and off the airfield.
