History of Gatwick Airport
Gatwick Airport’s history dates back to as early as 1930 when it was known as Surrey Aero Club. After 4 years, this place was used for flying purposes and later used as a public aerodrome. At first, it served Paris and London Croydon Airport. The first flights of Gatwick flew to Belfast and Paris.
In 1935, Gatwick’s first terminal was designed and completed, and received the nickname of ‘The Beehive’ because of the design and structure. By the 1950s, Gatwick was designated as London’s second airport. European, American, and African were a few of the airlines that moved to Gatwick. This was after the Queen officially opened the airport in the 1950s.
The 1990s are important in the history of Gatwick because this is when the North terminal was officially opened and then EasyJet started its operations.
Many changes have taken place over the years at Gatwick. By the year 2014, Gatwick Airport was capable of serving around 900 flights flying in and out of Gatwick Airport on a single runway. This was the first time any commercial airport has handled over 900 movements.
In 2018, it was 60 years after the Queen officially opened Gatwick Airport. In 60 years, Gatwick has had a huge increase in passenger numbers as well as network routes.
