Gatwick Airport invests 1.1bn pounds on expansion
London Gatwick Airport announced Wednesday it was spending 1.1 billion pounds (Bt47.5 billion) on expanding its facilities over the next five years to accommodate a growth in passenger numbers.
Gatwick is the eighth-busiest airport in Europe and sits behind Mumbai as the world’s busiest single-runway air hub.
From December 2009 to the end of the new five-year investment in 2023, the total investment figure rises to 3.14 billion pounds.
Gatwick serves more than 228 destinations in 74 countries for 45 million passengers a year. It predicts that passenger numbers will hit nearly 53 million by 2023.
