Gatwick Airport has delivered record passenger growth.

It said it achieved strong results by competing with the other London airports to attract new airlines and increasing its share in the business travel market.

Gatwick also saw growth with its existing carriers and invested in new facilities.

Stewart Wingate, CEO of London Gatwick, said: “Gatwick’s record performance and growth to around 36 million passengers this year demonstrates how we are successfully competing in the London market and why we are best-placed to deliver the UK’s next new runway. Airlines and passengers are increasingly choosing to fly from Gatwick and this growth is expected to continue. And despite getting busier and handling growing numbers of passengers, we remain the top London airport for passenger satisfaction.”
