London Gatwick Airport spending £1.1b to expand

LONDON

Jun 15, 2018-

London Gatwick Airport announced on Wednesday it was spending £1.1 billion on expanding its facilities over the next five years to accomodate a growth in passenger numbers. Gatwick is the eighth-busiest airport in Europe and sits behind Mumbai as the world’s busiest single-runway air hub. “Gatwick is a major piece of national infrastructure, and our continued growth and ability to attract long-haul airlines is vital for the health of the UK economy, particularly in a post-Brexit world,” said the airport’s chief executive Stewart Wingate. “By committing to spend another £1.1 billion, Gatwick can continue to grow sustainably, attract new airlines and offer more global connections.” (AFP)
