Gatwick passenger numbers rise in 2011

2011 was a good year for passenger traffic at Gatwick Airport.

The airport saw 12 consecutive months of increased passenger numbers in 2011 with more than 33 million passenger passing through the airport last year – an increase of 7.3% when compared to 2010.

Contributing to the increase was a massive 19.8% rise in passenger numbers in December, although this was mainly due to the snow disruptions of 2010 which saw passenger numbers fall in December 2010.

Throughout 2011, Gatwick saw increased passenger numbers to a number of destinations including a 15.7% increase in European scheduled traffic, a 7% increase in domestic and Channel Island passengers and a 5.8% rise in passengers to Ireland.
