Gatwick Airport has won the prestigious accolade of Airport of the Year at the London Transport Awards.
Organisers said the airport was chosen because of its commitment to investment and innovation, its strong focus on customer service and the smooth running of Airline Moves, a project which saw three major airlines switch terminals.
This is the third award scooped by Gatwick in recent times – it was named Airport of the Year at the UK Transport Awards in October as well as earning the title of Best Airport from airport trade body the Airport Operators Association back in November.
The London Transport Awards were presented by Valerie Shawcross, the Deputy London Mayor for Transport.
Gatwick’s Chief Operating Officer, Chris Woodroofe, said: “Achievements like this only happen because of the collective efforts and dedication that people working at the airport – not just Gatwick staff – put in 24 hours a day, every day. This award is their award and I would like to thank them for everything they have done and look forward to working with them over the next exciting twelve months.
“Gatwick has transformed itself into a world-leading airport and there’s plenty more to come. We are only half way through our £2.7 billion investment programme, our long haul network now reaches over 60 destinations, and we have some exciting tech and service innovations coming soon so we continue to deliver the very best airport experience for our passengers.”
