easyJet to move all Gatwick flights to North Terminal

easyJet has announced it will switch all its flights to Gatwick’s North Terminal in 2016.

The announcement came as Gatwick Airport revealed plans to simplify airline operations and ease passenger journeys by restricting airlines to a single terminal.

EasyJet passengers are set to benefit from a raft of improvements scheduled for the North Terminal, including

  • a terminal extension
  • a brand-new £36m check-in area
  • the largest self-service bag drop in the world
  • a £30m investment in the security area, which will be able to process 5,000 passengers per hour
  • a new departure lounge
  • 30,000 sq ft of new retail space
  • a refurbished arrivals area.

Commenting on the consolidation Carolyn McCall, easyJet CEO said: “As our largest base Gatwick is of huge importance to easyJet both strategically and for the millions of our passengers who travel through the airport every year. Moving to one terminal creates the opportunity for easyJet and Gatwick to plan and deliver an improved experience for our passengers always delivering on our ambition to make travel easy and affordable for all of our customers.  Our shared ambition is for Gatwick to be both our biggest and best airport.

“Alongside the consolidation to one terminal we also plan to continue to grow at Gatwick through increasing our destinations, further improving our schedule and by deploying larger aircraft as we replace smaller A319s with 180 seat A320s and, from 2017, A320Neos.”
