London Gatwick is seeking approval to modify its airfield to allow it to become a two-runway airport capable of handling up to 75 million passengers annually.

London Gatwick, famous for being the world’s busiest single runway airport for decades, has started a public consultation process on its plans to bring its standby Northern Runway into routine use alongside its Main Runway.

The airport reveals that the proposal will allow for an extra 55,000 flights a year and help secure its long-term growth, at the same time as generating around 18,400 additional jobs by 2038 and an extra £1.5 billion Gross Value Added (GVA) for the region.
