Recent Changes at Gatwick Terminals

Due to COVID-19 and the reduced flight traffic, the airport authority has decided that all flights will operate solely from the North Terminal while the South Terminal remains closed. For that reason, when looking for which terminal at Gatwick, be sure that you’re looking at the most recent and accurate information.

This temporary measure means that the 29 airlines of the South Terminal are now operating from the North. As a result of this decision, South Terminal lounges, duty-free shops, restaurants, and cafes are temporarily closed. Many of the North Terminal shops and eateries are now open but their opening hours may vary. In terms of transportation, if you take the train to the airport, you can then board the free inter-terminal shuttle to go from the South to the North terminal. For those of you who plan to drive to the airport, you may need to pre-arrange airport parking near Gatwick Airport as the on-site North Terminal car parks will be crowded.
