Gatwick set for record-breaking summer

It may not have come out on top of the Airports Commission’s findings, but Gatwick is certainly flying high in the passenger stakes.

The airport is expecting a record-breaking summer with more than 6.8 million passengers expected to pass through the airport during the 6-week-long school holidays.

On its busiest day – expected to be Sunday 16 August – the airport will handle more than 150,000 travellers. In its busiest week – 6-10 August – more than a million passengers are expected.

Although Gatwick offers flights to more than 200 destinations, the top 10 destinations this summer will be:

  1. Barcelona
  2. Malaga
  3. Palma de Mallorca
  4. Dublin
  5. Faro
  6. Alicante
  7. Orlando
  8. Madrid
  9. Dalaman
  10. Amsterdam
