Stewart Wingate, Managing Director of Gatwick Airport, said: “We have introduced a range of new social distancing and hygiene solutions to achieve this so that we can all help each other protect each other while traveling in the airport.

“We are pleased to be able to reopen the North Terminal and look forward to welcoming easyJet again as they resume their flights alongside our other airlines.

“We accept that the government’s top priority is the protection of public health, but we continue to press for regular country-by-country reviews of quarantine regulations based on medical evidence. “

  • Wear a face cover when crossing Gatwick – according to government law, this is now mandatory on all public transport, including airports
  • Maintain social distance
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Keep your hands clean on the go using a hand sanitizer

In some areas of the airport, one-way flows will be in place.

Hand sanitizing stations, protective screens, regular deep cleaning and social distancing measures will be in place throughout the airport, added a spokesperson.

Gatwick Airlines have also introduced a series of health measures

Passengers are advised to check which terminal their flight departs from, as during this period airlines may operate from a different terminal than normal.

The north terminal was temporarily closed from April 1 due to the serious impact of COVID-19 on the number of flights.
