Gatwick offers more than 50 long-haul destinations

Gatwick is moving into the premier league of European airports according to its CEO, Stewart Wingate.

His statement came as the airport revealed that 20 new long-haul destinations will be available from Gatwick this year.

The addition of the 20 new routes means that Gatwick travellers will have the choice of more than 50 long-haul routes.

Speaking at the London Infrastructure Summit, Mr Wingate said, “Gatwick is now in the premier league of European airports that fly to more than 50 long haul destinations. Our long haul network can only increase as Gatwick grows and takes advantage of new aircraft that can fly further without the need to change at a hub.

“With this growth and momentum behind us, it is more important than ever that Gatwick gets the green light so it can get on and start building a second runway.”

  • New York, USA (British Airways)
