Information about Gatwick Airport
Gatwick airport parking will provide secure, convenient airport parking on your forthcoming trip.
Parking at Gatwick Airport has been in operation for over 70 years and it has always been ahead of its time. Its first innovation was a direct link for passengers between the airport and the nearby rail station. 20 years later its second innovation was to build a covered pier from the terminal to aircraft stands, which became a standard feature of airport design.
The airport handles roughly 31 million passengers a year and demand is growing. Gatwick is anxious to build a second runway to meet the growing demand but there is strong opposition from local residents and environmentalists
Gatwick is the UK's second busiest airport has only one runway on which 70 airlines fly to over 200 different destinations worldwide.

The main off airport car parks for Gatwick parking are the APH and BCP compounds, based about 10 mintues from the airport. These are both privately owned by the brokers and have a large number of spaces available. These off airport car parks generally tend to be more appropriate for longer stays but are equally popular for short breaks, with the minimum stay at Gatwick APH being only 3 days in the winter period when less people are going on holiday.
There are a range of on airport options for Gatwick parking with various choices for both the North and the South terminals. The NCP Flighpath will probably be most useful if you want an on airport Gatwick car park which is near to the terminal building, meaning the transfer time is minimal. If flying from Gatwick South terminal, the best option will be either Parking Express South or the Summer Special car park. Both these are again on airport, which is ideal for shorter transfer times to the terminal.
Finally, you can choose the Meet and Greet option for Gatwick airport parking, which means you are met at the terminal by a representative from the parking company and they will park your car for you, then drop if back to you on your return. This ensures a swift exit from the airport, not having to wait for the transfer bus. There are 3 choices here with Cophall Farm, PAS and CPS all providing Meet and Greet Gatwick airport parking.
