From aerodrome to airport
Gatwick was originally founded as a small private aerodrome in 1930, on a rural site adjacent to a racecourse. The aerodrome was a major departure point for flights to Paris on fledgling British Airways. Although the airport grew throughout the 1930s, eventually becoming a flight school and maintenance centre for the RAF, horse racing at the nearby racecourse – now under the modern airport – did not cease until 1940. The first major terminal building, the Beehive, remains standing and is now an office building. Even in its early years, Gatwick was a popular choice for continental travel because of its ease of access from London; flight tickets to Paris included the cost of a first-class train ticket to the airport.
Over the last decade, Gatwick has become best-known for point-to-point flights to Europe, while Heathrow dominates the transatlantic travel market in the UK. The large number of people travelling from London and the south to Europe, either on holiday flights or for business, has driven the airport's development, including a series of improvements to terminal facilities which will make Gatwick one of the nation's most modern airports. Gatwick's location, just over 45 km from central London, makes it a very convenient airport for people who live and work in London.
High passenger volume and frequent flights, especially for business purposes, mean that it pays to be prepared when travelling through Gatwick airport. Although there are regular express train services to the airport, many prefer to drive and park at Gatwick, giving themselves more control over their arrival time and travel.
