WHAT IS HAPPENING: Three airlines have moved terminals and this could affect where you are travelling from. Depending on your travel dates, it could also mean you fly out from one terminal, yet return to another.


WHAT AIRLINES ARE MOVING: British Airways, Virgin, and EasyJet are all moving terminals in the latter part of January 2017.


WHEN AND WHERE: Here’s the information you’ll need for the North and South Terminal changes coming your way.

From 24 January 2017…

All easyJet flights will depart from the North Terminal

From 25 January 2017…

All British Airways flights will depart from the South Terminal

All Virgin flights will depart from the North Terminal

Gatwick’s South Terminal welcomes all British Airways flights


WHAT DO I NEED TO DO: Follow these tips here…


CHECK YOUR DEPARTURE TERMINAL:  If your flight departs after 24 January 2017, you might be flying from a different terminal. Your airline should have provided you with information about which terminal to go to, and there will be extra staff and signage as a reminder at both terminals.


CHECK YOUR ARRIVAL TERMINAL:  If you fly out before 24/25 January 2017 but return after, affected airlines will bring you back to a different terminal. If you need to travel between terminals, the free shuttle service takes just a couple of minutes.


HOW WILL THIS IMPACT ON PARKING: Here’s how the terminal changes could affect your airport parking..

Park & Ride: Our transfer bus stops at both the North and South terminals, so as long as you know where you should be leaving from, this will not have any impact on your journey.

Meet & Greet: Make sure you follow instructions and travel to the correct terminal if using meet and greet services. Your provider should be aware of any changes for your return flight if arriving at a different terminal.

    Mr Barden

    You forgot to tell your customers the Good news.!

    APH is serving both terminals so no problem for your customers from which terminal are departing or arriving.

    I am sure the airlines will advice them correctly and even your excellent staff when they arrive at the depot for their departure.
