It serves more than 200 destinations in 90 countries for around 33 million passengers a year on short- and long-haul point-to-point services. The airport employs 23,000 people.

Did you know that Gatwick Airport is owned by a Blackman?

Adebayo Ogunlesi, chairman of Global Infrastructure Partners, bought the airport earlier this year and said he is going "to make Gatwick a truly first class experience".
