Gatwick Airport's annual passenger count exceeded 34 million for the first time last month with the airport handling an 8.8% increase in passengers during December.
The increase, Gatwick Airport's highest number of passenger traffic to date, was part of the 10.9 million passengers handled by BAA airports in December. Each of the groups' 7 airports were besieged by cancellations and delays as a result of severe foggy conditions during the Christmas week, yet passenger numbers continued to grow.
Gatwick Airport parking will soon be in high demand. A higher number of passengers are expected to use Gatwick Airport in 2007, therefore pre-booking an airport parking space is becoming essential. Increasingly so with the Gatwick Express service under threat of closure.
