All about Gatwick Airport:The capital's second-largest international airport is located 29.5 miles south of Central London and 2.7 miles from the Sussex town of Crawley. It has the world’s busiest single-use runway and can handle up to 55 aircraft movements per hour (the owners are currently in the process of applying for permission to build a second runway). Gatwick has two terminals – the North and South – from where more than 34 million passengers fly to around 200 destinations in 90 countries. The airport opened for commercial flights in 1934 – when an air ticket to Paris with the fledgling British Airways would cost around £4 – including first class rail travel from London Victoria. The equivalent journey taken today would cost around £600. Gatwick Airport is owned by Global Infrastructure Partners, who also have a controlling interest in London City and Edinburgh airports.
