London Gatwick Starts North Terminal Redevelopment

Kicking off its latest improvement piece, London Gatwick Airport has begun its redevelopment of its North Terminal.

The programme will see the airport spend over £10 million on its North Terminal to create a much more appealing terminal that has the space for the travelling public to relax, shop, and dine.

The airport has said that they expect the redevelopment works to be completed in early 2024.

Passengers will be able to experience a much more modern departure lounge with new flooring and contemporary seating which have power points. There will also be a sustainable plant scheme and local artwork being brought into the terminal to showcase the airport’s connection to its surrounding areas.

Executive Comments

London Gatwick’s Retail Director, Rachel Bulford, says, “The redevelopment of our North Terminal is aligned with our refreshed brand and vision.”

“The new features and layout will make the space easier for our passengers to find their way around and ensure they have a more enjoyable and efficient journey through the departure lounge.”

“The varied seating areas, charging points and pleasant environment will also give passengers the freedom to spend more time doing what they want, whether they’re looking for a space to relax before their flight, do some shopping, sit down for a meal, or send some last-minute emails.”

“It’s important that we create a unique sense of place for our passengers, not only through our retail and restaurant provision, but also the look and feel of the departure lounge. We want to recognise Gatwick’s location as a London airport, while also celebrating being in the heart of the South East and all the fantastic things the region has to offer.”
