Gatwick Airport started off as Surrey Aero Club, which was used by flying enthusiasts. This was until 1934. Later, it became a public aerodrome, which was used by London Croydon Airport. Gatwick Airport experienced its first scheduled flights flying to Belfast and Paris at this time.
Gatwick Airport went on to become London’s second airport by the 1950s. It received a lot of airline connections as soon as the Queen officially opened the airport. British, American, African airlines were a few of the main airlines. The first terminal at Gatwick was nicknamed as ‘Beehive’ because of its shape.
EasyJet began its first operation from Gatwick Airport in the 1990s, and this is when the North terminal was officially in use. Gatwick has gone through many changes over the course of its development. One of the most significant moments in Gatwick’s history is the fact that the number of movements was 900 on a single runway.
Gatwick Airport has had 62 years of service until now, serving over 40 million passengers. During the years between 1978 and 2008, flights connected to the United States used Gatwick Airport exclusively instead of Heathrow Airport due to an agreement between the UK and United States Airways.
