Gatwick Issues Advice To British Airways, EasyJet And Virgin Atlantic Passengers On Terminal moves

Published on : Saturday, January 21, 2017

Gatwick AirportGatwick Airport is advising British Airways, easyJet, and Virgin Atlantic passengers to check through which terminal they will be travelling, as it prepares to relocate these major airlines next week.

 

 

British Airways will move to the South Terminal, Virgin Atlantic will move to the North Terminal, and easyJet – which currently operates out of both terminals – will consolidate its operation in the North Terminal.

 

 

Relocating these airlines will simplify the journey through the airport for passengers, and travellers will benefit from brand new facilities, including state-of-the-art technology at check-in, security and immigration, as well as new bag-drop zones and premium lounges.

 

 

Signs across the airport will change to display the correct wayfinding and 70 additional helpers will be on hand to point passengers in the right direction.

 

 

Gatwick is issuing the following advice to passengers flying with these three airlines during and after the moves. This is particularly important for those who may be travelling through a different terminal than the one that they are used to:

 

 

 

 

The first move to take place is easyJet, which, from Tuesday 24 January, will operate entirely from the North Terminal. The following day all British Airways flights* will be from the South Terminal and all Virgin Atlantic flights from their new home in the North Terminal.

 

 

Behind the scenes, Gatwick has been busy preparing for the moves, with a complex programme of work that stretches right across the airport, from check-in areas to crew briefing rooms and engineering bases.

 

 

The moves have been staggered over a 72 hour period, to ensure a seamless transition, with all three airlines operating a reduced flying programme to simplify the process. There have also been 37 trials to test every element of the airlines’ operations in their new homes, which have proved that they are ready for the switch.
