This unveiling provides significant economic opportunities for the region. The airport's new modernized brand acknowledges its proud past and emphasizes its status as a significant international gateway while also highlighting its connection to the wider VINCI Airports network.


The airport's vision is centered on providing a customized experience to meet the individual needs of all passengers, regardless of their journey.




The vision is supported by a reinforced emphasis and investment in streamlining the airport experience by prioritizing ease, efficiency, and enjoyment. This will enable passengers to have more time to shop, relax, or attend to last-minute work calls or emails.


A substantial multi-million-pound development program has been launched to complement the new brand and vision.

The program includes the extension and modernization of departure lounges, creating more contemporary and attractive spaces for passengers while taking into account the airport's sustainability objectives.


Additionally, the development program aims to accelerate automation in check-in and boarding procedures and implement cutting-edge improvements in airfield technology. Gatwick Airport railway station will also undergo a multi-million-pound upgrade which is expected to be completed later this year.




CEO Insights


Jonathan Pollard, London Gatwick's Chief Commercial Officer, said that the launch of their new brand and refreshed vision is perfectly timed as the airport enters its second year of recovery from the global pandemic and prepares to embark on a promising growth phase.


The airport plans to rejuvenate its image by investing in airport development and updating its visual identity, with the goal of attracting more passengers to fly from Gatwick to even more exciting destinations.

While the previous brand served the airport well for over a decade, it's time to modernize and update the airport as it looks toward future growth. The refreshed brand celebrates the past and brings the airport into the future.




The new branding can already be seen across many of Gatwick's digital and social channels, and it will come to life across the airport in the coming months for passengers, airport partners, and colleagues to see.
