LONDON – Since June 2020, London Gatwick´s Southern Terminal has been closed to save money at low demand.
Now, after two years of closure, the southern Terminal is set to open up again on March 27th.
Gatwick’s CEO Stewart Wingate said:
“After an incredibly challenging two years for the airport, our partners, local communities, and the entire aviation industry, we are delighted to be reopening our south terminal next month.”
“Following some major announcements from our airlines about significantly increased flying schedules, and from Government on removing travel restrictions and airport slot regulations, we can now look forward to once again operating a busy Gatwick this summer and beyond”
Despite Gatwick preparing for a busy summer, Heathrow reckons that they´ll have a slow start.
The demand would be “weaker than expected”, it´s still 56% lower than in pre-COVID years.
