Gatwick Airport is set to welcome nearly 750,000 passengers across the Christmas and New Year period - a 570% increase on 2020 due to last year’s Covid-19 restrictions - as passengers jet off on festive getaways and visit loved ones abroad.

The holiday period is traditionally among the busiest of the year for Gatwick, outside of the summer peak, with the airport welcoming in excess of 1.6million passengers between 18 - 31 December pre-pandemic.

The busiest days for departures this year are expected to be 19, 23 and 26 December, with approximately 33,000 - 35,000 passengers per day. The most popular routes include Dublin (short-haul) and Cancun (long-haul).
