Gatwick Airport is London’s second largest international airport. It is situated in Crawley, West Sussex. The airport also holds the title of the second busiest airport in the United Kingdom. Around 34 million passengers pass through Gatwick every year, which is about half the amount of passengers that pass through London Heathrow Airport.
Gatwick Airport started life as a small airfield in the late 1920’s; it was located near a race course in West Sussex. The ownership of the land that the airfield was on changed hands a number of times up until 1933 when it was sold to an investor. Over the years the airport underwent many changes that saw it expand in size.
In 1958 the Queen officially opened Gatwick Airport on June 9th 1958. The airport continued to expand and has seen the number of passengers continue to grow as a result.
