Gatwick wins London airport of the year award

Gatwick Airport has been presented with the airport of the year accolade at the London Transport Awards.

Organizers who decided the winner noted Gatwick’s £2.7bn (US3.7bn) investment program and transformation of the North Terminal. The airport’s Airline Moves project – when Gatwick’s three biggest airlines switched terminals over a 72-hour period – was also cited by judges.

Chris Woodroofe, chief operating officer at London Gatwick Airport, commented, “Achievements like this only happen because of the collective efforts and dedication that people working at the airport – not just Gatwick staff - put in 24 hours a day, every day. This award is their award and I would like to thank them for everything they have done and look forward to working with them over the next exciting 12 months.

“Gatwick has transformed itself into a world-leading airport and there’s plenty more to come. We are only half way through our £2.7bn investment program, our long haul network now reaches over 60 destinations, and we have some exciting tech and service innovations coming soon so we continue to deliver the very best airport experience for our passengers.”

The awards recognize transport excellence, innovation, strong customer service and the provision of first-class passenger facilities.
