This airport became a United States destination in the 1970s until 2008 when the U.S. was unable to fly to Heathrow due to restrictions imposed by the government. The airport has changed hands several times over its lifetime, and each change helps to grow the airport.

Gatwick Airport Reviews

★★☆☆☆
Gatwick really does need to get the new runway but a brand new terminal first. I travelled both in and out of the North Terminal and it wasn't great. Check in was OK and security was pretty good actually. I have always gotten through in about 5-10 minutes. Once you're through though you get into a very dark and dingy departures area. No natural light. Ok so there are indeed plenty of shops and restaurants but there's nowhere to sit in front of windows, even near them until you get to your gate. Some of which you cannot get back to the terminal once you go there. Returning to Gatwick from another country was even worse. There were 2 immigration lanes; EU & UK and International arrivals. The international arrivals had about 30 gates and few people queuing whereas the EU & UK gates had 15 automatic barriers where the queues were huge. People who live in the UK have to wait 30+ minutes and people from other countries can go straight through. The automatic barriers were really slow and just didn't work for some people making the queue incredibly frustrating.
- Matthew West

★★★★☆
My favorite London's airport, still providing great and quick service. Only one thing - buggy should be reclaimed strait after getting out from the plane, especially when you travel with twins!
- telesfor

★★★☆☆
BA are now using the No 1 Travellers' lounge until their new one opens. It is a joke. To have paid thousands of pounds for an international business class ticket to have your wine rationed and told you can only order one warm meal (during a 6 hour transit) is appaling. No facilities, nowhere to lie down and get over the 14 hour flight you have just been on...I was MUCH more comfortable on the CX 777-300 at 36000 ft than on the ground in this lounge.
- Simon Wicks

★★★★☆
Being flown to Gatwick North Terminal for the first time I was quite surprised to see how built up it is. As I wasn't expecting to see it being like that. Wi-Fi, is not the best I have ever had if I'm honest, as it is only free for 90 minutes, and to connect to it on the North Terminal is a huge hassle. Other than that it was a good experience to travel through Gatwick at this time.
- Mark Szutor

★★★☆☆
Not a place where I would spend much time since I almost always use Gatwick as an arrival airport. It takes some from time north terminal gates to the exit and the railway station...but it's ok.
- high9

★★★☆☆
Two major downsides here: terrible transport connections (too far away from London by car, train operator is a complete disaster) and only one runway means delays are almost guaranteed. Avoid if possible.
- Jonas

★★★★★
Security lovely and quiet at 0500, but about the only thing open! Shops and restaurants aplenty which opened at about 0500. Departed from South Terminal, which went very smoothly. Nice experience.
- Robert Brooks

★☆☆☆☆
I'm afraid I really don't like Gatwick - the South Terminal was crowded, cramped, dingy and dated. The food offerings were ok, but all were rammed with people. This airport needs a revamp.
- Morgan Dye

★★★★★
Perhaps due to early in the morning, passport control was not crowded. Quickly from north to south terminal by shuttle to catch the Gatwick Express.
- Simão Godinho

★★☆☆☆
As usual, some of the security staff made life as difficult as possible and behaved in a boorish manner. Check in opened 20 minutes late and, far from apologising, the woman was deliberately obstructive to other passengers and me, refusing to allocate a window seat despite the aircraft being only 1/3 full.
